Vegan Strawberry Dessert Tamales - easier than you think! They are sweet and delicious and will wow anyone you serve! You've gotta try these!
Chef Notes: If you would like to make these with fresh masa, replace the masa harina with 2 lbs. of fresh masa and use only 1 cup of almond milk. To substitute the fat you can use 8 oz. of coconut oil. For tamales without fat, substitute with 8 oz of cooked, unsweetened pumpkin. Notes from the Veggie Inspired kitchen: I did not need any extra water as suggested in Step 4, but you might. I did not let the dough rest as suggested in Step 5. I would have eaten it all raw if I had to wait! The tamales still turned out light and fluffy and perfect! Not a chance I waited an hour before eating these like suggested in Step 11. Maybe 20 minutes, if that. Parts of them were a little soft, but they were still firm enough. I loved every bite. If you can wait the hour, they will definitely firm up more.
