Ingredients In Vegan Pozole Verde

Beans - Pinto beans, or black beans

Tomatillos - Fresh tomatillos chopped into cubes

Onion - White or yellow onion

Chile pepper - Jalapeño or serrano and canned diced green chiles. If you prefer a non-spicy soup, just leave chile pepper out. (canned diced green chiles are not spicy)

Garlic - Whole garlic minced or a tablespoon of jarred minced garlic

Hominy - Mexican-style hominy can be found in the Hispanic aisle in the grocery store and I prefer its taste for posole to regular white hominy.

Spices - Ground cumin, Mexican oregano, salt & pepper

Liquid - Gluten-free vegetable broth and lime juice.

Oil - Olive oil, or vegetable oil

What is Mexican Hominy? 
 Hominy is a fantastic food derived from corn kernels that have long been a staple of Mexican cuisine. Mexican-Style Hominy is made with a combination of corn kernels that have been soaked in water, lime, and salt to bring out their natural flavor.
