Crazy Delicious Easy Vegan Beans and Cornbread Casserole

I am a big fan of quick hearty meals, something you can make in the morning and cook at dinner time. Then you already have the mess practically cleaned up and you feel like superwomen or superman when it comes to dinner time. This is where this tasty vegan beans and cornbread casserole comes in.

This dish is good enough for company, or for bringing someone a meal, or just for a tasty dinner. After one bite of this my 9-year-old was estatic and claimed he already wanted left overs. Those are my favorite nights.

I love cornbread in general, and then add it to the mixed goodness of beans and you’ve got a winner!

The best part about this meal is that it takes about 10 minutes to whip up, the rest of the time is just cooking it.

What do you need to make this vegan beans and cornbread casserole?

  • white, black, and refried beans
  • corn
  • salsa ( your fav)
  • salt, pepper, chili powder, cumin
  • cornmeal
  • flour
  • baking powder
  • oil
  • flax seeds (for flax “eggs”)
  • plant milk
  • vegan cheese is optional*

How do you make this casserole?

Start by preheating your oven to 375 degrees. Take a 9×13 dish and spray with cooking spray, set aside.

Then make your flax “eggs” do this by grinding some flax seeds. Take 2 tablespoons of your now flax meal and put it in a small cup, mix 4 tablespoons of water and stir let this sit while your work on the rest of the recipe.

Get a medium sized bowl and stir the rinsed and drained white and black beans, refried beans, drained corn, salsa and seasonings. Stir this altogether and pour it into the prepared 9×13 pan.

Now take a medium sized bowl and make the cornbread topping. Whisk all your dry ingredients together and make a well in the middle. Now add your wet ingredients including the flax egg and stir until combined. Now pour the cornbread topping onto the beans and spread evenly.

Don’t mine that hole in it, my kids got to it =)

Cook in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes, checking it with a toothpick in the middle for doneness.

You could add vegan sour cream or whatever topping you want to this to add a little more pazzaz, but it’s just as delicious without it.

Can I use anything else in place of flax egg? I don't have any flaxseed.

Do you have any egg replacer? You could use 2 “eggs” from egg replacer if you have that on hand? Or chia seeds? Let me know if you don’t any any of those.
