Black Bean & Hominy Succotash with Barbecued Portobello Mushrooms
Here smoky-flavored grilled mushrooms are served over a black-bean-and-hominy succotash. Serve with: Cornbread and an avocado-and-tomato salad.
Tip: The dark gills found on the underside of a portobello mushroom cap are edible, but can turn a dish an unappealing gray/black color. Remove the gills with a spoon, if desired.
Shopping Tip: Hominy is white or yellow corn that's been treated with lime to remove the tough hull and germ. Canned cooked hominy can be found in the Latin section of large supermarkets--near the beans--or at Latin markets.
