Vegan Pozole


I grew up in a beautiful Mexican culture full of love, family gatherings and delicious food. Mexican food is the epitome of comfort food. It is warm, satisfying, flavorful and often times has a kick of spice.

Posole is a warm hearty soup with hominy, typically eaten during the holidays. As a young girl I remember the excitement of getting to my grandmothers house and being served a bowl of hot posole soup along with crunchy tostadas (a toasted corn tortilla).

Typically pose contains pork or chicken. I took my grandmas traditional Posole recipe and vegaized it by using vegetable stock and tempeh. You can totally use vegan chicken, seitan or even some diced potatoes.

What is Hominy?

Hominy is dried corn that has been soaked in a lime bath. It’s puffy and chewy and has a very special flavor thanks to its processing technique. You can buy hominy in a can at your local grocery store…in the latin section in the international aisle!





  • 8 cups  (64 oz) Organic Low Sodium Vegetable Stock
  • 4 cups of hominy
  • 8 oz tempeh sliced (or vegan chicken… I suggest the brand gardein)
  • 2 Medium onion, 1 whole and one dices (reserve 1/4 of the diced onion for later)
  • 2-3 dried peppers (chiles de arbol)
  • 1 large tomato
  • 3 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano (+ more for garnish)
  • 2 cups shredded cabbage
  • 1 cup sliced radishes
  • 3-6 limes
  • 2 tablespoon vegan bouillon (optional)
  • salt to taste (if you choose to leave out bouillon)
  • 12 tostadas or corn tortillas (optional)
