ISO Vegetarian tamale recipe

Years ago I made a vegetarian tamale which contained onion, garlic, corn, red pepper .....

It was very good. So good, that i thought id remember the recipe for ever.

Years later, here I am, with no memory at all, other than it was very good.

SO, what im looking for is a vegetarian tamale recipe, or a regular tamale recipe that I can work with to vegetarianize (if this is a word) it. I love being creative so i have no problems converting it to a veg recipe, I just need cooking times, measurements and things like that to keep me on track.

anyway, thanks in advance,

The last, and only time I've made tamales, I used coconut oil instead of lard. They turned out very well. The masa was moist and both fillings I used were delicious, especially the pumpkin one. Next time, i will try to use less coconut oil because they were pretty calorific. I've posted both links that I used to come up with a recipe, and my ingredient lists. I hope they help.

Whole Foods, Black Bean and Spinach Tamales:
Tofu Mom, Pineapple Tamales

6 cups masa harina
4 cups beef flavored broth (I use better than bouillon)
2 cups water (up to)
12 oz coconut oil (will use less next time)
1 tbs baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder

Filling #1 (Spinach & Black Bean)
2 cans (15 oz) black beans
1 lb baby spinach
2 tsp cumin seed
2 jalapeno peppers
8 cloves garlic
1 tsp salt

Filling #2 (Pumpkin & Soyrizo)
1 tbs vegetable oil
1 onion, chopped
14 oz pumpkin puree
1 can (15 oz) black beans
1 package (12 oz) soyrizo, broken up
tsp cumin
tsp pepper
1 tsp salt
