Red Pozole (Vegetarian)

Posted December 29, 2009 by Chef Molly
Pozole is a classic Mexican stew and generally made with pork. This version is vegetarian but has bold flavor and if your ingredients are pre-cooked (hominy and garbanzos) it really doesn't take much time at all. The flavors will be even better the next day so try making it a day ahead.

  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 cups chopped onion
  • 2 clove garlic

Warm the oil in a soup pot. Add the onions and saute on medium high heat for 5-7 minutes until golden. Stir in the garlic and 1/8 teaspoon of salt and saute for 2 minutes more. Add the tomatoes and squash and simmer for 10 minutes.

Add the bell peppers, cover and cook for 10-15 minutes, until the squash is tender. Stir in the Garbanzos, hominy, lime juice, chipotles, remaining salt, and the oregano, sage or epazote. Simmer for 5 minutes. Serve with your favorite garnishes.
