I tried a new vegan restaurant in my town, and ordered their chili. It was so tasty and comforting, I wanted to replicate it at home. I wanted to accompany the chili with some cornbread. I searched the internet for vegan recipes, but they all had ingredients I don’t use, such as baking powder, unbleached flour, and sugar so I decided to create my own recipe.
