When my little sister was visiting me last weekend, I decided that we should have a cooking night in (brrr, it's cold out there!) I wanted to make something time-consuming and different and something we don't eat often, so tamale time it was! Tamales have been on the "things to make" list for awhile now, and it was the perfect night for them. We made an improvised filling of black beans, rice, sauteed mushrooms, onions, and some sriracha and cumin seasoning, and used the recipe from Viva Vegan! to do the rest. Holy yum! Added bonus: this makes a TON of leftovers, so into the freezer they go for later enjoyment!
