Pozole is a traditional stew or soup from Mexico and is a fun dish to garnish with toppings of choice! Here we have used creamy avocado, coriander and corn tortilla strips.
1. Heat a saucepan over medium-high heat with 3 tbsp oil. Dice and add shallot. Add 1 tbsp cumin, 3 tsp smoked paprika and 1 tsp oregano. Cook for 2 minutes until fragrant.

2. Add tomato paste and 1/2 the coleslaw. Crumble in 1 stock cube. Cook for 5 minutes (add more oil if needed) until coleslaw is wilted.

3. Pour in quinoa, drained beans and 2L water. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes until quinoa is cooked through. Squeeze in 1/2 lime juice (wedge remaining). Season to taste with salt and pepper.

4. Heat a frypan over medium-high heat with 2 tbsp oil. Cut the tortillas into thin strips. Add to pan and cook tossing for 5 minutes until heated through. Remove and set aside.

5. Dice avocado and chop coriander. Put aside with alfalfa sprouts and remaining coleslaw.

6. Divide pozole among bowls. Garnish with toppings.

Add the lime zest for extra flavour.
If you have any dried chillies you can add it to the soup as it simmers.
