So I have a confession. I don’t tend to eat the most healthy of foods. Anyone who knows me understands this to be true. I would eat bacon everyday if someone handed it to me. And chocolate should be a mandatory part of anyone’s daily diet.
But, 2013 is going to be a big year for me. For many reasons; the least of which is I’m going to try to eat a *tad* more healthy. And this soup is probably the healthiest thing I’ve ever made. It’s not half bad; for being healthy that is. It made me eat lots of vegetables. Even carrots, which I hate. And let’s face it: I’ll eat anything with avocados.And in my quest to be more healthy, and make this soup, i discovered a new love: hominy.
What is hominy you ask? It’s basically dried corn kernels that have undergone a process called nixtamalization. Whatever, it’s good. The taste conjures up some Mexican street food from my past, but I can’t quite put my finger on how to describe it exactly. It’s delicious. Just try it. It would probably go great in salads, other soups, mixed in with grilled chicken as a topping with some garlic. Just go crazy.
