Vegan Cornbread

Print

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.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

I love Maria’s focus on using quality ingredients like maple syrup, apple cider, sunflower milk and garbanzo flour. Garbanzo flour has more protein, fiber and iron than wheat flours, and is gluten-free. This would be a great complement with a vegetable and bean-heavy chili.
