The Editor's Vegetarian Tamales

I've made up this recipe since vegetarian tamales are hard to come by. They're actually quite easy to make, just a few steps and a little time are needed. What makes this recipe even more unique is that it uses plain, round coffee filters instead of corn husks in which the tamales steam! It really works! What REALLY helps is having a pasta pot, too. Place water in the bottom and put the pasta rack/steaming basket in. If you don't have a pasta pot, you can use a large stock pot (with lid) and place an inverted cake pan in the bottom. On top of the inverted cake pan, place a cookie-cooling rack or steaming basket. Anything that ensures the tamales won't touch the water in the bottom of the pot.Submitted by: EDITORABC
