Mexican Tamales Made Vegan and Vegetarian
The idea for this book came to me the first Christmas after I went meatless. The idea of not having Christmas tamales crushed me.
It simply wasn’t an option to not have delicious, and as close to the real thing tamales, ever again.
I began experimenting with different ingredients like TVP and though not all of the experiments yielded yummy results, I kept trying and testing.
Particularly so as more time went on and I began discovering new vegan and vegetarian ingredients.
About This Vegan Tamales Cookbook
Amigos, the cookbook is my passion project with 5 years in the making. It makes me so happy to finally share it with you.
I tried my hardest to make sure that the flavors of these tamales were as authentic as possible. The majority of the recipes are traditional tamales from different regions across Mexico.
Some are reimagined flavors taken from other Mexican dishes…like with my vegan birria tamales.
There are a few that are new modern flavors, but I know you’ll really enjoy.
All the tamales you see here I shared with friends and neighbors. All of which are meat eaters. All of them raved about the delicious flavors and some couldn’t believe there was not meat.
I know you and your loved ones will also truly enjoy these tamales recipes.
Vegan Tamales Recipes & Vegetarian Tamales Recipes
The book has a total of 16 savory tamales recipes and 4 sweet tamales recipes.
Each recipe tells you if it’s vegan or vegetarian. Plus there are also tips on how to make a vegetarian recipe vegan and vice versa.
Vegan Masa for Tamales
I also included 4 different masa recipes. Some made with shortening, oil, masa harina and fresh masa, plus there’s also a “basic sweet masa for tamales” recipe.
Countless Tips for Making Authentic Meatless Tamales
The book is packed with so much information. It’s super helpful both for the complete beginner and the more experienced cook too.
I share tips on how to make sure the masa is ready for spreading. There’s a section all about prepping the corn husks and the banana leaves, as well as spreading the masa and rolling up the tamales.
There’s also tons of information on how to steam the tamales — it doesn’t matter if you don’t have a tamalera, there are tips for a regular pot as well as an Instant Pot.
I’ve also included plenty of tips on how to store the tamales — whether raw or steamed, in the fridge and in the freezer.
Plus there’s lots of instructions on all of the ways you can reheat your tamales!!
Tips on Serving Tamales & Drinks and Foods to Accompany Your Tamales
On top of the masa and filling recipes I’ve also included many recipes for serving your tamales. There are side dishes, salsa, drinks and more.
There’s also a couple unique ways you can serve them. Like did you know you can transform one tamal into a complete breakfast?
