Sample recipes from Vegan Mexico: Soul-Satisfying Regional Recipes from Tamales to Tostadas
Arroz verde is a refreshing, herbaceous alternative to Mexican red rice. Its ideal on a hot day as a great side for lighter dishes. If you want to kick up the heat level, add a couple fresh serrano chiles. Serve with sliced avocado and lime wedges and a bowl of seasoned black beans for the perfect lunch.
Although this torta has a long ingredient list, it comes together without a lot of hassle. Its basically a bean and chile sandwich with a garlicky vegan mayo spread.
Chimichangas, called chivichangas in Mexico, are basically deep-fried burritos. A little decadent, but wonderful as an occasional treat, they epitomize the mingling of the American-Mexican border culture by their use of flour tortillas mixed with a filling suffused with adobo. You can find these in Tucson as easily as on the Sonoran side of Nogales.
You can take the basic churro batter and frying technique in this recipe and create your own churro concoctions. Making these takes a little practice (though you get to eat the mistakes) in order to get the feel for the dough, the oil, and the size of the churro. Youll need a piping bag and a star tip to make these, so have those handy before you begin.
