Over the weekend, we made Vegan Posole from Very Vegetarian and it is now in our top 5 favorite dishes! Very Vegetarian is a fantastic vegan cookbook that I found at a garage sale for $1. We have experimented with many items out of this cookbook and most have been successful - now we have another one to add to the list.
Onto the Posole. Posole is a Mexican stew typically made with pork. Since we are trying to eat less meat and incorporate more veggies and fiber in our diet, the vegan version made a lot more sense. Ryan picked this one out, so we ran to the store to buy the ingredients. Our grocery store didn't have pattypan squash, so we used butternut and it was perfect. Other ingredients were roasted poblanos and jalapeños, roasted tomatillos, hominy, white beans, garlic, and probably something else I'm forgetting! Then you have your choice of toppings: green onions, cilantro, radishes, avocados, and lime wedges. We happened to have all of the topping ingredients and went with every single one of them, plus some corn chips for good measure.
Have you tried any versions of Posole? What do you put in yours?
