Quick and Easy Vegetarian Posole Soup with Hominy

User Rating 4.5 Star Rating (5 Reviews)


Quick and Easy Vegetarian Posole Soup with Hominy
Although this quick and easy posole soup recipe is both vegetarian and vegan, traditional Mexican posole soup is almost never vegetarian! Though this vegetarian posole recipe may not be quite as authentic as others, you'll find that the combination of peppers, hominy, chili and cumin lends it a satisfying and authentic Mexican flavor.


  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 carrots, sliced or grated
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 15 ounce can hominy
  • 1 15 ounce can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt, or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp pepper, or to taste
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • fresh cilantro for garnish (optional)


In a large stock pot, simmer the garlic, onion and carrots in the water for a few minutes, until onions are soft. Add vegetable broth and allow to simmer for another 5 minutes or so, until carrots are soft.

Add remaining ingredients, and allow to simmer for at least 20 minutes. Garnish with a bit of chopped fresh cilantro, if desired.

yummy, Guest dimplene

new vegetarian to the scene, craved some posole. This was excellent and super easy! I did add cilantro to have something green and lime to make it tangy. Thank you!
