Plant based posole



Plant based posole

If there is one thing that will make anyone feel better from a stuffy cold, that is spicy soup.  My favorite spicy soup is posole.  It will clear the head and warm the tummy.  I grew up German, so I only was introduced to this in the last 15 years.  It always had chicken in it, that is, until today.
Now, as the title says, E A S Y.  Here are the ingredients:

Ingredients:
1 large yellow onion, peeled and diced into 1/4 inch pieces
4 cloves garlic
1 large carrot, peeled and diced small
1 large rib celery, diced small
1 qt. good veggie stock
2 14.5 oz. cans of diced tomatoes, with juice
1 10 oz. can of RoTel® mild (diced tomatoes and green chilies)
1 7 oz. can of salsa verde (green)
1 25 oz. can of hominy, drained and rinsed
1 tsp. cumin
salt and pepper to taste (I wait until its done)
1-2 fresh limes (juice)

Here is a picture of the brands I used for the salsa verde and hominy.

In a large soup pot, over medium heat, add the onions, carrots, garlic and celery.  Saute for about 10 minutes, until translucent and soft.

Add all the remaining ingredients except the salt and pepper and lime juice, and stir well.  Cover pot, and let simmer for 30 minutes.
  
Take lid off, and add lime juice (I like 2 limes) and salt/pepper.
Serve with some freshly chopped cilantro, or maybe some crispy corn tortilla strips.
