Tamale pie is a traditional Southwestern comfort food that’s usually made in a casserole dish with cornmeal, cheese and fillings. It’s a versatile recipe and fun to make because you can improvise, adding your own ingredients. You can even prepare it as a vegetarian dish, using tofu for protein rather than meat.
In addition to being a good source of protein, tofu provides plenty of calcium (if calcium is used in processing), manganese, omega-3 fats and vitamin B1. Tofu, made from soybean curds, is low in saturated fat and a nutrient-dense super food.
