2 ounces fresh ginger, peeled and grated
1 gallon corn stock
2 cup dry-roasted unsalted peanuts
5 tablespoon smooth peanut butter
4 jalapeño chiles, stemmed and diced
10 ears sweet corn, shucked, kernels cut off
cobs and roasted
5 cilantro sprigs
In a small stockpot over high heat, bring the water and hominy to a boil. Boil for 35 minutes, then drain the hominy and rinse it in cold water. Melt the butter in a large stockpot over high heat. Add the onions, garlic, and carrots and sauté for 10 minutes, stirring often. Add the ginger, stock, peanuts and peanut butter. Bring to a boil and whisk until the peanut butter is evenly incorporated. Decrease the heat to low, cover, and simmer for 35 minutes. Uncover the stockpot and puree the soup with a handheld blender until smooth. Add the hominy, jalapeños and roasted corn. Simmer 5 more minutes. Strip the cilantro leaves from the stems and julienne. Ladle the soup into shallow bowls. Sprinkle some of the cilantro leaves over each bowl and serve.
Serves 4 to 6.
