My father-in-law recently motivated me to make something with Hominy. It’s not that I didn’t know what Hominy was, I just didn’t have a recipe in mind that I could use it with. Until one day when I was going to make a bean salad and discovered I was out of white beans. But luckily I had a can of white Hominy!
Today’s food trucks are far from cheap eats on wheels, there are some seriously gourmet offerings on four wheels.
It’s really easy to find Hominy here on the West Coast, but maybe a little more challenging in some areas. Just check the Hispanic section of your local grocery store as that is where they may stock it. For those of you that are not quite sure what Hominy is, it’s basically dried corn.
If you are still not convinced, Hominy is used to make Masa (for tamales), pozole, hominy bread, hominy chili, casseroles, and fried dishes.
