It’s chili season, and it’s my personal belief that chili is incomplete without cornbread! I was recently emailed by someone asking about vegan cornbread, one that isn’t too sweet or dry. I quite like this recipe — it never fails and is a hit everywhere I take it. When it comes to cornbread, I like using flax seed gel or “eggs”, as it gives the bread a slightly nutty flavor, which pairs well with the corn.
When it comes to flax seed and egg conversion:
One egg = 1 Tablespoon ground flax in 3 Tablespoons hot water. Whisk and let sit for a couple minutes to form a gel.
Homemade chili atop homemade cornbread; is there a better combination? (Okay, maybe cake and ice cream.)
