These tamales are vegan, and very tasty! Use a standard masa recipe, but substitute lard for coconut oil. It works beautifully. For this version: You’ll need masa, corn husks, coconut oil, a good-sized red onion, zucchinis, corn, and green chile. I also used a dollop of chipotle paste in the filling. Use you fingers to spread the masa on the corn husks. … After you’ve steamed the finished tamales for about an hour, top them off with some Salsa Fresca. Cheers!
