is so easy to make for a quick dinner during the winter months. I discovered Hominy a few years back at a local Mexican restaurant that I went to in Florida. I fell in love with them at the first bite. Hominy is another name for dried maize kernels, and this common food is often made into grits or added to stews in Mexico.

Vegan Mexican Hominy SoupYou can always find it on Amazon but I buy mine at Trader Joe’s  to make Vegan Mexican Hominy Soup. The other thing  is a broth that I tried that made the soup delicious. It was not to salty that sometime broths can taste so I used Garden Veggies Cubes. The best part it is all vegan and for our #NoMeatMonday nights of the week.

Vegan Mexican Hominy SoupDuring my Stem-Cell treatment I have had tons of protein so I needed a break. All veggie right now makes me feel more energetic. I know you can get it with protein powder but still not a fan of the chalk taste that all the ones I have tried have. If anyone out there can recommended one that doesn’t have that taste, please let me know?
