Vegetarian Tamales — 9 Comments

  1. Your tamales look beautiful. I make them every year for Christmas. Since moving to Australia I have had to substitute banana leaves for corn husks (they don’t sell them here and you can’t bring them in). Anyways, I have yet to master making them look pretty. We do the traditional red chile with pork, but I also like to fill half of them with a slice of asadero cheese and a strip of pickled jalapeño–a type of tamale I learned to make in Mexico.

  2. YUM! The only challenge with tamales is that the recipes make so many. I don’t know about you but I can only eat so many and then I get bored! LOL

    The next time I get the ‘cravings’ I’m going to make these.

  3. Maya your tamales sound wonderful. I thought about using banana leaves because I actually had some. I’ve only cooked with the leaves once. Do they change the flavor?

    Jerry – yes, it can get a bit boring since it is mostly the cornmeal. I think that is why I like to freeze them and not eat them for days on end. 🙂

  4. Marta, your tamales look great! I like unusual tamales, so the vegetarian ones sound delicious.

    Pictures are beautiful too – I think I may try my very first tamales using your photos as a guide.

  5. I love tamales! They are like little packages of delicious texture and flavors.

    I’ve never made tamales but been wanting to make them for a long time. Your step-by-step with pictures might be the inspiration I needed to finally make them.

  6. I love tamales too, but have never tried to make them. It would be a fun weekend project. Yours look delicious (and thanks for the red sauce recipe too).

  7. Hi Marta, what a great family tradition… I enjoy Tamales and love the ones with the sweet corn in them. Your vegetarian tamales looks really delicious! I love all of your step by step photos. And that’s a really beautiful presentation in your last photo.

    Thanks so much for sharing your recipe and photos. Have a great week.

  8. Wow, these look wonderful. I’m another who loves tamales but has not yet made them. and your filling looks great–I know I’m at least going to make that!

  9. Marta, your tamales look marvelous, darling! 😉 Your photos are Bon Apetit worthy. Thanks for the recipe and helpful hints.
