BM #98 Week 2 Day 3 - 

Vegan Mexican Stew is a delight to have for dinner and very easy to put together. The instant pot makes it an easier one.

I spent about 10 minutes chopping, 5 minutes sauteing and I was off on my errands. The instant pot took care of the rest. The simple flavors were comforting and my soup/stew hating daughter loved it. That is 
a big relief for me. She even saved a serving for her midnight snack :) .

The various versions I referred online have Hominy listed as one of their ingredients. But I substituted it with Frozen corn kernels.

Ingredients - 

Olive Oil 2 tsp
Garlic grated 2 cloves
Onions finely chopped 1 medium
Tomatoes Diced 1 14 oz can or 3 large tomatoes chopped
Frozen Corn Kernels 1 cup
Potatoes diced 2 medium 
Carrots chopped 2 big 
Celery chopped 2 stalks
Salt, Cumin Powder, Red Chili Powder as needed
Green chilies chopped as needed
Water or Vegetable Broth 4-5 cups (Adjust as needed)

Method Of Preparation -

Make sure the Power for the Instant Pot is on with the inner pot in place and dry.

Set it to 'Saute' and when it indicates that the pot is 'Hot' add oil and saute the grated garlic and onions until golden brown.

Add in the diced tomatoes, diced Potatoes, chopped carrots, frozen corn and chopped celery.

Sprinkle the salt, cumin powder, red chili powder and chopped green chilies to taste.

Pour 4-5 cups of water or vegetable broth. Mix well.

Cancel 'Saute'. Put the Instant Pot lid in place. Set it to 'Pressure cook' or 'Manual' for 6 minutes.

Let the pressure release naturally. Adjust the flavors and consistency as needed. Let it simmer on 'Saute' for a few minutes before serving.

Garnish with coriander leaves (cilantro) and serve hot with a side of Tortilla chips.

  2. This sounds delicious. You should definitely try the hominy. It has a unique flavour and higher nutritional profile due to the liming it undergoes.This substantially raises the protein availability. The ancients really knew what they were doing if it if only accidentally! I'm enjoying your Mexican series this week.
