Bowl of Spicy White Bean & Hominy StewIf it is cold do we not shiver?  If we are ill, do we not sniffle?  When we are sad, do we not require hugs, understanding and something soothing for our tummies?  Do we vegans need, from time to time, comfort food – just like everyone else?  You bet your sweet bippy we do!  This chili is the perfect example of nourishing, plant-based comfort food to brighten any vegan’s day.

Spicy White Bean & Hominy Chili
Serves 4

Can of White Hominy2 15 oz. cans white beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup vegetable broth
1 4 oz. vegan chipotle/chorizo sausage, chopped
1 large onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 poblano chiles, seeded and chopped
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. cumin
3 cups vegetable broth
1 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 tsp. salt
1 15.5 oz. can white or yellow hominy
2 tbsp. cilantro, chopped
1 avocado, chopped
lime wedges

Mash 2/3 cup of beans and set aside.

Heat vegetable broth in a soup pot and saute the sausage in 1/4 cup vegetable broth.  Add the onions, garlic and poblanos and saute for 5 minutes.  Add the chili and cumin powders and cook for 30 seconds.  Add the mashed beans, whole beans, 3 cups vegetable broth, oregano, salt and hominy.

Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes or until thickened.  Garnish with cilantro and chopped avocado.  Scallions would be good, too.

    sounds yummy, but what is vegan sausage?

    • Hey Debbi! Thanks for stopping by. Well…it’s just like regular sausage except there’s no meat in it ;-). Usually made with seitan (wheat) or soy – and with all the spices and flavorings you’d expect in various kinds of meat sausages. I’ve got a few recipes on here (Italian sausage, Apple-Sage sausage) that would give you an idea of what kind of ingredients are used.

    I just love the texture of hominy. My mom would make it a lot for us when we were young. She was from the deep south and transplanted up here to Pennsyltucky where she married a yankee,
