Naturally Vegan: One Pot Winter Pozole
Rinse 3 dried peppers (you can include more peppers if you would like it spicier, but just a warning, these little peppers are VERY spicy). Remove stems and seeds and soak in hot water for about 20 minutes.
In a large pot bring 8 cups of water to a boil. Add onion and tomato to boiling water and cook for six minutes.
Remove onion and tomato from the pot, reserving the boiling liquid. Add onion, tomato, soaked peppers,, garlic cloves, oregano, and 3 cups of the boiling liquid to a blender or food processor; blend until very smooth. Add more water as needed to reach smooth consistency.
Pour the blended mixture back into the pot of water and add bouillon paste. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. Cook until the bouillon paste is fully dissolved. Add the rinsed hominy to the pot and cook over medium heat for about 25 minutes.
Taste the broth and add 1 tsp of salt if needed, and adjust seasonings. Feel free to add black pepper for additional heat.
To serve, add a generous squeeze of lime juice, a sprinkle of dried oregano, a handful of shredded cabbage, chopped cilantro, jalapeño slices, avocados slices, and a side of corn tostadas.
