Tamale Pie

3 Cups Water
1 Cup + ¼ Cup Yellow Corn Meal
1 ½ Tsp Sea Salt
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Red Onion, chopped
1 Cup Assorted Vegetables (and meat), chopped
2 Tsp Chili Powder
15 oz Can Diced Fire-Roasted Tomatoes
15 oz Red Kidney Beans
1 Cups Corn Kernels
Grated Soy Cheddar Cheese, amount to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bring water to a boil in a large pot, then add ½ tsp sea salt. Slowly, stirring as you go, add one cup cornmeal-- a little at a time. Cook for another 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Pour mixture into a lightly oiled 9”x 13” dish and spread to cover bottom. Sprinkle a little grated cheese over top and set aside. Heat olive oil in a large, heavy pan over medium heat and add onion. Cook until translucent, about 5 minutes, then add assorted veggies, starting with longer cooking ones and ending with shorter cooking ones like leafy greens. Cook until almost soft. Stir in remaining teaspoon of salt and chili powder. Add tomatoes, beans, corn and remaining ¼ cup cornmeal. Stir to combine, then pour into cornmeal-lined dish. Sprinkle with a little more cheese, bake for 20 minutes, let cool slightly, then serve.

Thanks for the comment. I am glad you like the site.

If I haven't posted the points, I haven't figured them out yet.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
