RECIPE: Vegan Pozole
Servings: Four


1 large can of jackfruit (roughly chopped)
2 jars of homemade veggie stock (or 1 box of vegetable broth)
4 cups of water
1 yellow onion, diced roughly
4 cloves of garlic roughly chopped
1 medium can of hominy
1 tbsp ancho chile powder
1.5 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 bay leaf
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tbsp vegetable oil

purple cabbage
radishes (sliced)
lime wedges
cilantro (chopped roughly)

In a medium sized pot bring your vegetable oil up to medium heat. Add onion and saute for about a minute. Add garlic and seasonings. Saute for another minute. Then add broth and water which will then deglaze the pan. Add the jackfruit and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer on low for 30 minutes. At the end of the 30 minutes, add your can of hominy, cover and let simmer for another 5-10 minutes. Taste the soup and add more seasonings as needed (I sometimes add more salt, cayenne, garlic or ancho powder at this point).

Serve up in a large bowl and squeeze in a wedge of lime, a scoop of diced avocado, a handful of cabbage and sliced radishes. Mix in and enjoy!
