As I was in search of way to use up my squash crop, I ran across this recipe at Allrecipes.com. It was submitted by: THE HOOVE and stated: "The Iroquois Indians cultivated and used the Three Sisters (corn, squash and beans) in their diet. This is a recipe passed down by our relatives. You may use regular corn instead of hominy, but hominy is more traditional."
- 2 cups hominy, drained (canned white or yellow)
- 2 cups fresh green beans, trimmed and snapped
- 2 cups butternut squash, peeled and cubed
- 1 1⁄2 cups potatoes, peeled and diced
- 5 cups water
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons chicken bouillon granules
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- Place the hominy, green beans, squash, and potatoes into a pot.
- Pour in water and chicken bouillon.
- Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, and simmer until vegetables are soft, about 10 minutes.
- Blend flour into the butter, then stir into the soup.
- Increase heat to medium, and cook for 5 more minutes, or until soup thickens.
- Season with pepper, and serve.
