>New Food of the Week: Hominy

>I have never had hominy. I hear its fairly common in the south.

My recipe for it comes from the Vegetarian Times I just got in the mail (just in time!). This month’s issue is a really good one. If you’re not a subscriber, I recommend finding it somewhere (pre-subscription, I bought mine at Whole Foods)

Some hominy nutrition facts:
1 Cup of hominy has 115 calories, 1gram of fat, 4 grams of fiber, and 2 grams of protein. Its canned, so its full of sodium.

So, faithful readers (and by readers, I think that only means Jess), what’s your favourite thing to do with hominy?

I made the Hominy Salad with Basil-Shallot Viniagrette from this month’s Vegetarian Times Magazine. It was great. The recipe included grape tomatoes, lima beans, and yellow bell pepper. It was bright, colorful, refreshing, AND hearty.

  1. >Speaking of the new VegTimes, I am drooling over that sweet and sour pineapple on p.26; I'll be making that one soon!


  2. >ooh, Nichole, that one grabbed my attention almost immediately. I also want to make the tacos (sans cheese) that are on the cover. And the quinoa-avocado verrines. and the stir fried tofu bento box

  5. >Anna, I think you would love it!


  6. >Yup, it's a good mag. They usually post most of their recipes online once it's been out for a few months though, which is nice.Kelly, I gave you a little shout out on one of my posts today: http://veganniche.blogspot.com/2010/05/sauteed-plantains.htmlI like what you're doing with trying new things. You should post pics though!


  7. >*sniff* thanks for the shout-out! ❤ I'm going to go brag about it on twitter. ^_^The problem with pictures is, I don't write the post until I get them loaded onto my computer, and it takes forever for me to think to get them loaded. I'm also often too impatient to take photos before the food starts going into my mouth.
