Vegan Veggie Tamales! Need I say more?
In my constant search for good vegan Mexican food in Dallas, I stumbled upon this gem at Veracruz in Oak Cliff. Made with a simple combination of masa, water, and vegetable oil, the super-tender tamales are filled with diced carrot, corn, broccoli, and topped with salsa. Delicious and HUGE! Make sure to order the dish with no cheese and no rice (it contains chicken broth). Veracruz also offers an interesting salad called Cactus Salad of the Desert. It's made with baby greens, nopales, corn, tomato, and mango. I didn't try the salad (I just couldn't pass up vegan tamales), but my friend Marc (whose taste I totally trust) swears it's amazing!
