I made this for the first time tonight and it is AMAZING! This is from the fabulous Vegan Planet cookbook. It's pretty easy to make, the color contrasts make it gorgeous and it would make an excellent base to a chili pie or something. I would even double it and make 2 pies, because this will go FAST! As a side note, I also made the tahini zuccini bread from the same book tonight, but haven't had a chance to sample. Next time I'll take a picture before it all disappears!
Hot Tamale Vegetable Pie
from Vegan Planet by Robin Robertson
Oven at 375F
2c frozen corn, thawed
1/4 c minced red onion
4oz can of diced hot green chiles, draned (I used Ortega mild and added Tabasco)
3TB chopped pimento (it comes in a jar somewhere in the canned tomato section)
8oz soft tofu, drained and crumbled
1/4c yellow cornmeal
1tsp chili powder
1tsp sugar or other sweetener
3/4tsp salt (I used Lawrey's mmm)
3/4tsp baking powder
Freshly ground pepper to taste
Salsa to top is desired
1)In a large bowl, combine corn, onion, chiles and pimento. Set aside.
2)In a blender or food processor, combine remaining ingredients until smooth. Fold this into the veggie mixture, stirring to combine.
3)Transfer to a lightly oiled 9" pie tin and bake until firm and top is golden brown (30-45 minutes) Let rest 5 minutes before cutting into wedges. Great on it's own, but also good topped with salsa and/or sour cream.
