So you’ve enjoyed some green bean casserole (extra fried onions on top), some stuffing (extra sausage mixed in), and some pie (extra pastry crust underneath)… let’s share a big bowl of butter!
I jest. Let’s instead do our cholesterols a favor and enjoy a refreshing Warm Winter Spice Salad made with hearty quinoa, satisfying hominy, and a flavorful array of spices and seasonings.
You’re welcome, cholesterols!
If you’re not familiar with hominy, I think you’re going to appreciate the introduction: it’s the whole version of the treated corn that is ground into what you know as masa harina. Masa harina is, of course, the corn-based flour that is used to produce the masa, or dough, that we use to make tamales, sopes, huaraches and our very favorite, corn tortillas. Now you’re a hominy expert and you have something to talk about at your next holiday cocktail party other than Kimye’s recent sound bite.
