Tasty Tuesday: Vegetable Posole

Now that I’m semi-retired, I’m helping out more with the cooking. Yesterday I made vegetable posole with gluten-free flour tortillas.

I based my posole recipe on one from Rancho Gordo Vegetarian Kitchen. During the holidays, I stuffed my own stocking with a bag of their dried hominy. I loved hominy as a kid, so I decided to see if I still like it. And I do! But I wasn’t sure how to prepare it.

I felt the recipe was a little thin, so I added mushrooms and sliced Anaheim chilis, and also made a roux. The result was a deliciously chunky vegetable soup with chewy hominy. I think I would like the addition of scallops or shrimp. Bob and I both felt the stew needed more mushrooms.

The recipe I followed is not online, but here is a link to several of their hominy recipes.

You can see my gluten-free tortillas didn’t come out great. They tasted good, though, and were crispy enough to tear apart and add to the stew like a tortilla soup. I gifted Bob a tortilla press/grill, but I was the one to give this appliance the first go. We’ll have to adjust the recipe and try again. Here is a link to the recipe I followed.

I have three cups of cooked hominy leftover. I’m thinking about making grits for breakfast!

Have you tried any new recipes lately?

  1. This looks tasty! I’ve considered making tortillas, though the ones I’m most interested in attempting to make are a classic corn tortilla. I’m not sure how good a job I’d do with it, though. My attempt at making naan (skillet fried, not baked) was okay at best.

  2. Though I often use GF corn tortillas, I miss flour tortillas. I will give your recipe a try using Bob’s Red Mill 1to1 GF flour. Love the notes that came with your recipe on GF flours she had tried!
    Here’s a link to a recipe for an easy crock pot chicken/pumpkin chili that has very good flavor, I think it would be fine without the chicken if need be. https://www.eatthis.com/slow-cooker-pumpkin-chicken-chili-recipe/
    And here’s a link to a simple flat bread made with garbanzo bean flour that is fun to make and can go with almost any meal. https://www.forkinthekitchen.com/socca-chickpea-flatbread/#recipe
