If there’s one thing we here at Burning Cedar Sovereign Wellness love almost as much as soup, it’s rhyming… introducing: Sunday Soup Group
We are kicking off 2023 with the very first of our new monthly community cooking workshops!! Starting this month, the last Sunday of every month will showcase a different soul-soothing, belly-warming big-pot-of-good-medicine recipe featuring traditional Indigenous ingredients + a hands-on workshop with Chef Nico as part of our program Burning Cedar Sovereign Kitchen: A Native Foodways Classroom. The goal of this program is for our urban Native community in Tulsa to GATHER – ingredients and each other – HEAL through healthy traditional foods and intentional cooking, and GROW stronger together!
Tanchi labona, pashofa, amagei – no matter what you call it, corn soup is an ancient + delicious way to warm up these cold winter months! For our inaugural class, we will be making a chile-spiked southwestern version of that OG ancestral staple dish: POZOLE.
Chef Nico will give background about how corn came to our ancestors, why it’s such an important food, and then take us step-by-step through a simple + satisfying recipe for Red Chile Chicken Pozole! Using dried chiles, traditional dried hominy from Haudenosaunee Chef/Traditional Corn Grower Dave Smoke McCluskey (founder of Corn Mafia), and of course lots of fun toppings. And then the best part: WE EAT!
