Posole has been around for hundreds of years in Latin America as far back as the Pre-Columbian discovery. Posole began it's fabled tradition as a celebratory soup served as part of ritual feasts and special occasions. Historically, the key ingredients of pork and corn have remained throughout it's fabled past. We have created a delicious vegan version by omitting the pork and using fresh greens, Anaheim peppers, carrots and aromatic spices.

So what is hominy? Hominy is simply a dried kernel of maize (corn) that has been soaked in an alkaline solution, usually lime or lye. This treatment naturally breaks down the hull and germ of the kernel and allows the corn to swell to almost twice it's original size.

Once finished with this process, the swollen kernels can be dried as hominy, or turned into masa. And this masa is the dough that is used in making tortillas, tamales and many other important Latin American recipes.

Uses for the dried hominy does not stop there. The kernels can be ground into uniform pieces of smaller and made into polenta or grits (depending on the region). Corn has be instrumental in shaping cuisine all over the Americas and hominy as taken center stage for centuries.
