My mother's friend made me a batch of vegan tamales. She makes them for her vegan daughter and I. I put my 2 dozen in the freezer after pulling out two for dinner. I forgot to ask her for salsa though. Ohh there is always next time. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
I also talked the health food store owner into doing another round of soup. He said he was closed for the year (soup shop) but I told him no...that the weather is still yucky. So this weekened I can go pick up my vegan chili...I have been craving it.<br><br><br><br>
Can you tell I love beans? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)">

Being the bean lover that I am and Ms. hardcore vegan shopper I have searched online for people that make them. There is a place out in Los Angeles that does some yummy looking ones with soy cheese to curry flavoring! They cost about $3 each though!<br><br>
To make them is a bit tricky. One can always make tamale pie though...Close enough but simple!<br><br><br><br>
It is good to network and have your family network on behalf of you. My mom hooked me up with yummy vegan tamales and for the last few years I get a batch every few months. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

We have a great place downtown that is all about vegetarian tamales. They have several kinds, but only one that's vegan, but still. I think they rock.<br><br>
And the neatest part(why I'm here mentioning it) is that they can be <a href="http://www.hotdamntamales.com/shop/index.html" target="_blank">ordered online</a> and shipped to you. So that could be very useful... I always think about sending some up to my aunt or something.

One of my closests friends' family runs a tamale factory in Austin, TX called Rosalita's. They make vegan tamales because my friend is vegetarian (an oddity in her traditional Mexican American family). Anyway, I don't think they sell much beyond the region, but it's worth looking into...

A tamale is a corn-mush (masa) shell filled with beans to tofu and then wrapped in a corn husk and steamed till cooked.<br><br><br><br>
I had some for dinner tonight...I was going to have museli but opted for beans instead!
