'The Kitchn' recently published a recipe for making cheesy vegetarian tamales. Traditional Mexican tamales are made from pork and chicken, which is then wrapped in a steamed corn husk. This recipe replaces the meat with a tasty goat cheese and mushroom filling.
The vegetarian tamales are made from a combination of fresh vegetables, creamy goat cheese and plenty of spices. The filling itself contains a combination of crimini mushrooms and shiitake mushrooms, which gives the dish an earthy flavor. Goat cheese is then added to balance the taste of the mushrooms while also adding a hint of sweetness. After the filling is wrapped in a streamed corn husks, the tamales are coated in a spicy mole verde.
The recipe puts a vegetarian twist on a classic Mexican dish by using healthy and flavorful ingredients.
