totally yummy

so whole foods had a vegan posole soup the other day so i thought i would make one. it turned out soooo yummy.
1/2 # dry posole & beans (i used pinto)
2 ears of corn
3 tomatoes
braggs amino
olive &/or flax oil or some high quality oil
dried thyme & cilantro
chili powder
veg broth
toppings: avocado, tomato, onion, fresh cilantro & lime

i soaked the beans and posole (hominy) overnight and after rinsing them a few times then woke them up with a bath in the crock pot this morning with mushroom broth, a couple garlic cloves and a bay leaf.
i had taken onion, zucchini and mushrooms and marinated them last night with cholula hot sauce, braggs amino acid, crushed garlic & a little olive oil (i also added some flax seed oil).
i cooked the beans and hominy a few hours then added the veggies and some chopped tomatoes. Added Cumin, some more braggs, chili powder, dried thyme & cilantro & powdered garlic and chopped some fresh corn right off the cob in there
cooked until hominy was tender (a few more hours). . .
topped with fresh cilantro, tomato, avocado and a squeeze of lime! add more cholula to taste and drizzle with flax seed oil if you want.
that's how you do a vegan dinner (and lunch tomorrow!)
