Butternut Squash Green Pozole is a hearty, satisfying Vegan meal that is inspired by the classic Mexican Pozole Verde.
Pozole is a traditional Mexican soup served during the holidays and special occasions. Pozole Verde is a traditional dish served in served in the state of Guerrero. There are many different versions of pozole. Depending on the state you are are in Mexico, you could be served pozole blanco, rojo or verde. I love all three versions, but if I had to pick a favorite it would be pozole verde.
The base of this pozole verde has toasted pumpkin seeds, tomatillos, onion, garlic, cilantro and chile peppers. In my vegan version, I have swapped out the meat for chunks of butternut squash. I like to keep the squash on the larger side. The sweetness of the butternut squash balances out the nutty and spiciness of the green sauce.
Traditionally pozole is garnished sliced radishes, cabbage and dried Mexican oregano. I also like to add avocado slices to this Butternut Squash Green Pozole. The creamy avocado slices compliments that sweet chunks of butternut squash.
