  • 1 Onion peeled and cut into quarters
  • 1-4 Jalapeno Chillis I used the 3” chillis you can get in the supermarket in the UK, but I wussed out and de-seeded it. My heat tolerances are on go-slow at the moment, topped and cut into large chunks
  • 2 cloves Garlic peeled and squashed with the back of a knife
  • 2 cups Vegetable Stock
  • 1 Teaspoon Cumin I had run out of cumin powder so I toasted some seeds and ground my own in a pestle and mortar – the smell was heady and intoxicating, everyone should try it
  • ½ Teaspoon Salt or to taste
  • 400 g Hominy drained and rinsed
  • Cilantro fresh, (coriander) a couple of tablespoons, chopped
  • 3 tablespoon Vegetable Oil
  • Feta Cheese vegan, for crumbling
  • Toasted Pumpkin Seeds for Sprinkling


  • Throw the quartered onion, chopped chilli, squashed garlic and quarter cup of stock into a food processor or blender and puree until smooth.
  • Add the remaining oil, heat over medium high heat and stir in the onion/chilli/garlic puree mush. It will sizzle frantically for a few seconds.
  • Cook over a relatively high heat until the liquid has evaporated, stirring frequently, about 5-10 minutes.
  • Add the rest of the stock, the cumin, salt and hominy, stir well and leave to simmer gently for about 5 more minutes more or until thickened.
  • Serve in large deep bowls, sprinkled generously with the feta cheese and toasted pumpkin seeds.
