Home Cooking Dish of the Month - VOTING, February 2021

herby | Jan 26, 202103:15 PM     21

Thank you all for taking time to nominate a dish! We had lively nominations round where twelve dishes were nominated and two dishes emerged as contenders for February 2021 DOTM: LAKSA and POSOLE.

LAKSA is one of the most popular dish of southeast Asian cuisines and can be broadly categorized by its two main ingredients: noodles and soup. The word laksa comes from an ancient Persian word for "noodles". A wide variety of laksa exists in Southeast Asia, with regional and vendor-specific differences.

POSOLE is a traditional soup or stew from Mexican cuisine. Known in Mesoamerica since the pre-Columbian era, today it is common across Mexico and neighboring countries, and is served both as a day-to-day meal and as a festive dish. Pozole can be prepared in many ways, but all variations include a base of cooked hominy in broth. Typically pork, or sometimes chicken, is included in the base. Vegetarian recipes substitute beans for the meat.

It is obvious that we want to cook soup in February! Now let’s vote and choose which soup it will be.
To vote, click on the heart to the right of the post below for the dish you wish to select. Please vote for only one dish with the intention of making the dish and participating in our reporting thread in February (and beyond). You can change your vote by clicking the heart again to "unlike" the post, then clicking the heart by your new choice.

Voting will close on Sunday, January 31st, at 6pm EST.
