You know me. I like to change things up (even a little) with classic dishes whenever I can. I'd put this one in the category of Soup Like Grandma Made... Sort Of. It's delicious with traditional ingredients, but I brought my own touch. I thought mushrooms and black beans would be ideal ingredients for a Meatless Monday posole.
Posole is a traditional Latin American soup typically made with pork or chicken. A staple ingredient of posole is hominy — maize that has been soaked in a mineral lime bath. The result is a softer and larger version of a corn kernel. The texture is soft and a little chewy, and it brings the perfect touch to this soup.
You can easily adapt this soup to suit your own cooking style. Pick your favorite beans to use. Add diced tomatoes and your favorite seasonings. But whatever you do, don't skip my favorite part of this dish: the garnishes of shredded cabbage, lime wedges, radishes and avocado. Not only are they pretty, but they add quite another dimension to this bowl of soup.
Posole is a popular Mexican soup often made for special occasions, but this recipe is so easy you can make it any night of the week. It definitely gives off a festive vibe, especially with its varied toppings.
