A traditional American Indian soup, which is wholesome, delicious and easy to make. Hominy (hulled corn) is simmered with green beans, butternut squash and potatoes in a thickened chicken stock.
If tinned hominy is unavailable, use tinned sweetcorn instead.
I tossed all the vegetable ingredients for this in the slow cooker, put it on the low setting for about six hours, stirred in the butter and flour, and had a beautiful, healthy, delicious soup in the end. For seasoning, I used a dash of cinnamon and clove to bring out the flavor of the squash and then a whole lot of black pepper and red pepper flakes to make it spicy! I would have given this recipe five stars if I hadn't had to improvise so much with the spices. - 16 Oct 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My friends and I loved it! I also thought that the name and story behind it are so interesting. I will certainly make this again. I would love to see more of your family recipes on here!! - 19 Oct 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Wow, FABULOUS! Had requests immediately to bring this again next year! Makes a SUPER Thanksgiving dish - fun and delicious!! Also works great with vegetarian broths. Easy to make, especially if you can find frozen cubes of butternut. Chop the potatoes small enough for them to cook with the others (I had mine too large and had to cook it all a bit longer). Thank you for sharing this! - 12 Sep 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
