Slow Cooker Vegan Pozole Verde

Slow Cooker Vegan Pozole Verde

I love slow cooker recipes but find sometimes it is hard to find them for a vegan diet. There are lots of slow cooker vegan recipes for beans but not much else. This vegan take on a classic Mexican Pozole verde is a delicious, spicy soup packed with hominy and zucchini. You could easily add more veggies – kale, diced tomatoes, turnip, or even sweet potatoes would all be delicious. you could also use any other type of beans if you can’t find hominy, a popular Latin American corn product. This recipe freezes great so don’t be afraid of making up a big batch to save for quick meals in the future.
