Hominy Corn Porridge is a traditional and tasty Caribbean breakfast recipe that is filling, warming and only requires a few simple ingredients.
It’s a creamy blend of softened hominy kernels, milk (swap for coconut milk and make it vegan), a pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg for flavour and sweetened with condensed milk or sugar.
Prep Time: 5 Min
All Purpose Flour
Sweetened Condense Milk
Cook Time: 50 Min
Soak Hominy Overnight. This helps to drastically reduce the boiling time it takes to soften the kernels. Rinse hominy corn kernels with water two to three times or until the water runs clear, then drain. Add 2 cups of fresh water to the bowl and set aside overnight.
Boil Then Simmer Hominy. Drain the water from the hominy corn, then add to a large pot with 6 cups water. Bring to a rapid boil over medium-high heat for 5 minutes, then lower heat to a simmer and cook hominy corn until the water reduces and kernels become tender.
Add Milk and Spices to Hominy Corn Porridge. Stir in the milk and lower heat to low (should have just a slight bubble). Add nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla, and flour milk mixture and stir with a wooden spoon every few minutes.
