Two-Step Southwestern Stew

Two-Step Southwestern Stew

Serves 6

30 minutes or fewer

Hominy is one of the best-kept secrets of the vegetarian kitchen. These chewy white nuggets made from corn are great for adding hearty oomph to soups and stews. Find hominy alongside canned corn or in the Hispanic section of supermarkets.
  • 1 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1 medium-sized onion, coarsely chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 2 14.5-oz. cans diced tomatoes with green chilies, preferably fire-roasted, with liquid
  • 1 15-oz. can white or yellow hominy, rinsed and drained
  • 1 15 oz. can red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 medium-sized zucchini, quartered lengthwise and sliced
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro
  1. Heat oil in large pot over medium-high heat. Add onion, and cook 5 minutes, or until lightly browned, stirring frequently. Stir in tomatoes with liquid, hominy, beans, zucchini and cumin. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  2. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat to medium-low and cook 10 to 12 minutes, or until zucchini is tender. Stir in cilantro, and serve.

It's a wonderfully easy and delicious vegetable stew for vegans and vegetarians alike! I substitute 2 cans of Fire Roasted Salsa for the diced tomatoes with green chilies which brings some jalapeno heat. I also use black beans instead kidney beans. ALways try to have these ingredients on hand as it takes no time to make and is a crowd pleaser!

Pretty good. Added extra cumin and some garlic, and garnished with sour cream in lieu of cilantro. Super easy. I would make this again.

OMG! I love this soup. It's easy, it's delicious and it's low in calories plus very high in fiber. Anyone who says that high fiber doesn't taste good hasn't tasted this soup.
