Where To Get Vegan Holiday Tamales In Los Angeles

This year I think I’m going to take a break from our usual Holiday faire. Instead, I have my sights set on a nice big batch of tamales. First, I had to find out where exactly you can get vegan tamales. Turns out there were way more options than I imagined. Since, I’ve come across several other people looking for vegan tamales as well, I decided to make an official list. I think this will be exactly the quick, easy, and delicious option we have been looking for. The only problem  is trying to decide which of these amazing options to go with.
