Tasty Tuesday: Recipe – Vegan Cornbread

 

 

It’s “Tasty Tuesday”, where every week we bring you new, fresh, local, healthy recipes and food tips. Find out what is in season, and what will keep you fuelled during and after your work outs!

 

I had to get cornmeal for my pizza stone and I really wasn’t using a lot of it, so I decided to try and make something with the excess!

 

The back of the package offered the cornbread idea, and looking at it I said: I bet I can make that vegan. And I did. And handed it out to friends and got the thumbs up.

Next time I’m going to make it to go with some vegan chilli too!

 

Make Your Meal Even Healthier Tip:

 

I wouldn’t mess with this one too much and baking is kind of a delicate science, but my suggestion is to share it. It’s hard not to eat more than a few pieces, but it’s easier to be the baked goods fairy and make your friends happy as well!
