Vegan Mexican Hominy Soup 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.
You 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.
During 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?
- hominy – rich in carbohydrates and low in fat.

- parsley – vitamin K and vitamin C as well as a good source of vitamin A, folate and iron.
- carrots – source of beta-carotene, fiber, vitamin K, potassium and antioxidants.
- onion – soluble fiber and flavonoids assist in thinning your blood, decreasing inflammation.
Now that I am almost back to normal after a 2 week recovery from Stem Cell treatment. I’ll be back to posting on Monday and Wednesday. So let me know if you like this recipe and please don’t forget to rate it! See ya on Wednesday! Happy #NoMeatMonday
