Introducing one of the most popular soups from my delivered S.O.U.P. Cleanse! Posole is actually another name for hominy, which is a corn product that is sold in whole and ground form. Contrary to popular belief, hominy is actually one of the most nutritious corn products out there. Hominy is high in fiber, plant-based protein, and omega-6 fatty acids, and is rich in minerals such as iron, magnesium. phosphorus, zinc, manganese, and selenium.
This Vegan Verde Posole Soup is hearty and boasts delicious umami notes. The traditional Mexican soup is typically made with chicken, but this dish is fully plant-based using beans instead. It has been a home run for my cleansers and I cannot wait for you to try it!
