kickin' cornbread casserole

the first time i made cornbread was last year, to go with my smokey white bean chili recipe. since then, i've found myself craving different variations of standard cornbread and decided i wanted to make a cornbread casserole of some sort. below is the results.

  • 3/4 cups cornmeal
  • 3/4 cups unbleached flour
  • 1/2 cup soy milk
  • 2 tablespoons vegan butter (i use smart balance)
  • 1 can corn
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1 can rotel
  • 1 tablespoon onion
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons ener-g egg replacer (w/ 3 tbsp water)
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 2 tablespoons tabasco or other hot sauce
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • vegan mozzarella (optional)
mix dry ingredients (except breadcrumbs) in a large mixing bowl. in a separate bowl, mix up the wet ingredients (butter, milk, tomatoes, rotel, egg replacer and hot sauce), and fold them into the dry.


spread into a lightly greased 8x13 glass casserole dish - top with a thin layer of vegan breadcrumbs. i prefer panko. if you prefer, spread mozzarella tofutti slices or other vegan mozzarella on top.

bake for 40-45 mins @ 350°f.

I bought it at Whole Foods in the frozen foods area. I've seen it at our co-ops, small natural grocers, and even Ralphs (Krogers), so hopefully they have it in your area.

I just love the concentrated flavor of stewed tomatoes and haven't had the pleasure of legitimate cornbread for awhile. One question though: what exactly is rotel?

Lauren said...

Hey, sorry about the bad kale experience. I actually massage the olive oil and lemon juice into it really good for like 4 minutes, it gets it a little softer. But it's still really crunchy and takes a lot of chewing..hope it works out for you next time! :)
