Recipe by Brooke Lucy for Bluebird Grain Farms
Posole is a delicious, hearty soup that can serve as a full meal unto itself. The split emmer farro’s light texture and quick cooking time is a perfect pair with the traditional hominy in this recipe.
Top with sliced avocado, fresh cilantro, and fresh lime
In a medium size stock pot, saute yellow onion in vegetable oil until onions are translucent (about 8 minutes). Add garlic, oregano, cumin, chile powder, and jalapeno. Continue sauteing until spices are thoroughly blended with onion. Add split farro, chicken stock, tomatoes, hominy, and shredded chicken meat. Add salt to taste. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 30 to 40 minutes. Turn heat off. Serve and top with fresh avocado, cilantro and fresh lime juice.
