Vegetarian Cornbread Sausage Stuffing

I know it says sausage and it also says Pareve. I’m not losing my mind! I defy anyone at your meal to discern the difference between this cornbread stuffing and the o­ne that is made with milk and pork sausage. Even if you aren’t kosher, this recipe eliminates a lot of guilt as well as cholesterol. The cornbread recipe is good o­n it’s own as well. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 scant Tablespoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup soy milk
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 6 Tablespoons corn oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 ear of corn or 1 cup frozen, defrosted corn kernels

Preparation Instructions

  1. Spray a 9 inch square pan or a 7 x 11 pyrex pan with non-stick spray. Set aside. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Combine the first five ingredients in a medium bowl.
  3. Combine the soy milk and the lemon juice in a 2 cup pyrex measuring cup. Whisk in the oil and the egg. When combined, add the corn kernals.
  4. Add the liquid ingredients to the bowl and stir o­nly until thoroughly combined. Pour batter into the prepared pan and bake for 20 – 25 minutes or until a tester comes out clean when inserted into the center of the bread, and the top is a light golden brown. Cool for future use.

NOTE: May be made 2 days in advance or frozen for later use.
