I have always wanted to make tamales. Living in the South, they are quite popular here. Vegan ones can be hard to find. Luckily there is a place that makes vegan tamales, but they are pricey. I checked out a Mexican Vegetarian cookbook from the library and saw a tamale recipe in it. I have always heard tamales can be difficult and time-conuming to make. I thought I would give a it a go anyway. Success! I made three different kinds: sweet potato/pecan, black bean/plantain, and creamy corn. They were so good. I made one and a half dozen, so we had some to freeze. They were served with homemade refried beans and Spanish rice.
Fresh from the steamer.
Friday night I made homemade eggrolls and chickUN fried rice. They were both a real hit. The eggrolls had sprouts, cabbage, carrots, and shiitake mushrooms. Delicious!
Today and tomorrow will be busy for me. I am baking two big trays of brownies for Josh’s work and tomorrow filling a baking order. And I just remembered I am baking goodies for family members later this week. Looks like our place will be very warm with the oven on everyday. Yay for baking!
