Enjoy an early gift from us for your holiday meal this year as Dr. Iverson shares a traditional recipe from Nature's Diet Cookbook, releasing this spring!
Posole (Mexican Hominy Soup)  
Counts as a starch and a protein,
Add a vegetable    
This is a delicious traditional Mexican style corn stew.  I love the unique combination of the hominy mixed with the tomatillos and red peppers.  It is a traditional stew prepared in the Southwest and Mexico by native people to celebrate life's blessings during the Christmas season.  This is a beautiful holiday soup bursting with reds and greens.  Surprise your family this year with this fun and delicious traditional soup.  
You can make this with or without the chicken as a vegetarian option. 
What you need:
2 Tbs extra virgin olive oil
4 cloves garlic minced
2 cups onion chopped
2 cups red bell pepper chopped
1 jalapeño pepper chopped fine
Nature's Diet Cookbook8 cups hominy canned and drained or soaked overnight  (or if you don’t like hominy- try 8 cups fresh corn kernels)
5 cups tomatillos cut in quarters (about 2 pounds)
8 cups chicken broth or more
1 Tbs cumin
2 tsps sea salt (optional)
2 bunches spinach, collards, or other dark green (deveined and chopped)
2 pounds raw skinless boneless chicken breast cut in chunks or cooked chicken dark meat
avocado wedged
green onions thin sliced
cilantro chopped
radish thin sliced
jalapeño thin sliced
tomato chopped
In a large soup pot add the oil, onion, garlic, and peppers and sauté 1-2 minutes over medium heat until slightly tender. Add the hominy and tomatillos and sauté another couple minutes.  Add the broth and bring to a boil, cover, turn down the heat and simmer for 45 minutes until the hominy is soft. 
While still hot, stir in the seasonings, chicken and allow the flavors to blend and chicken to cook for 5 minutes.  Finally stir in the greens and allow to wilt for a few minutes in the hot soup.  Serve hot with garnishes. (You may wish to add more broth if it is too thick for your preference.)
Alternatively in a slow cooker add all the ingredients except the greens, chicken, and seasonings.  Allow to cook for four hours and stir in the final ingredients allowing to soften before serving with garnish. 
 Makes 12 cups
