Sweet White Hominy Pearls Tossed with Coconut Shreds

Fig 01- The colder weeks and we “stay in our bubbles”

It was 355 days ago, when we were ready to celebrate the Rat Year of the Chinese New Year, I posted about the new coronavirus “The gloomy in the Beginning of the Year of Rat”.

It is over a year since this type of virus, then we called it Covid-19, came up and spread, the viruses are still hanging around in this world.

They do not want away from us. They develop becoming new strains instead of leave us. The new strains are more virulent than their original, and we have to be aware.

A physician from Baton Rouge, Dr O'Neal, warns us not to get out in the next couples of weeks. He encourages us to “stay in our bubbles”.

This weekend and Monday Martin Luther King Holiday, I just stay in my small bubble, enjoy reading and cooking.

I cook my own snack. I would like to share with you my special sweet snack recipe. It can be a snack or an appetizer. Wondering what is it? It is sweet white hominy pearls covered with coconut shreds. 


Fig 02- Canned hominy

The taste of hominy is heavenly. Sometimes, I cook chicken soups with hominy or posoles, and another time I make hominy porridge with sweet condensed milk and/or coconut milk. I also like to add hominy in my salads.


Fig 03- Sweet white hominy pearls tossed with coconut shreds

Hominy is a product of corn, so it is free from gluten, high fiber, low fat and low carb.

One cup (165 g) of hominy contents about 120 calories, and 4 g(16% daily value) of fibers.

For today, I use hominy from Juanita's. I empty hominy into the pot, rinse, and cover with water.

Put the pot on medium high and bring to boil, then add some sugar, stir a few times. When the texture is softer, drain, and toss with coconut shreds. Ready to enjoy!

Do you like hominy? What is your favorite hominy recipe?

  10. Evi I have never heard of hominy! Not a thing over here in Scotland!

    Yes it is nearly a year now! We are in full lockdown until at least middle of Feb. I don't see anyway or met anyone. I just take my daughter out to feed the local ducks and horses and usually do a short walk...weather premitting haha!

  23. Hello, Evi. I've never tasted such a dish, but it was interesting to know about homini. In Russia we prefer boiled buckwheat, millet or rice porridge. All the porridges are boiled with milk or water.

  24. Wygląda apetycznie, ale nigdy nie jadłam :). Nawet nie wiedziałam, że taki przysmak istnieje :)).
    Buziaki i dużo zdrowia życzę!
    PS. U nas w Polsce mroźna zima, dużo śniegu więc dzieci szaleją na sankach :).

  38. Non conosco gli HOMINY, ma son andata a vedere su internet di cosa si tratta ^_^
    Praticamente chicchi di mais trattati in maniera particolare.
    Adoro il pop-corn e tutto ciò che ha a che fare con il mais, quindi credo che potrebbero piacermi, ma non mi sembra di averli mai visti al supermercato.
