Since we don’t have cable at home, when I go to the gym, I have this bad habit of watching Food Network. So while I’m on the treadmill or elliptical, I just think about food. It’s terrible.
Usually Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives is on. You know that show where they make nothing but unhealthy, extra greasy, really delicious dishes. But fortunately, a few weeks ago, I caught Rachael Ray’s show. And she made this delicious looking dish — Poblano Posole.
It’s healthy since there’s no meat, just a ton of vegetables. And it’s like a stew, perfect for this freezing weather.
The recipe is basically roasted poblanos, tomatillos, red onion, and garlic, blended with cilantro and spices. Then mixed with some broth, roasted corn, and hominy on the stove top.
To top it off, slice up some radishes. Rachael Ray puts avocado on top as well, but all the avocados at the market weren’t ripe enough to eat yet, so I skipped it. She also uses a little lime juice, but I think it’s already acidic enough.
The corn and hominy really add a little extra bite to this.
