Not even me. My mom only makes her famous cornbread dressin' twice a year — at Thanksgiving and Xmas. Though her original recipe isn't vegan, she makes a small vegan version just for me. My mom is the best! Everyone in the family loves, loves, loves this dish. The holidays wouldn't be the same without it.
Mama passed her Vegan Cornbread Dressin' recipe on to me, and it's going in my cookbook:
I follow her exact recipe with one exception — I sub out whole wheat pastry flour for all-purpose in the cornbread. It's healthier that way, but I think mama's tastes a little better with the white flour. However, I'll save my white flour consumption for special occasions like the holidays. Mama's may also taste a little better because mama made it. Everything tastes better when your mama makes it, right?
By the way, this recipe is a little labor-intensive. You have to make two batches of cornbread and a vegan cream of celery soup from scratch first. Luckily, my cream of celery recipe makes plenty of extra, so you kinda get two meals out of this. Nothing beats a fall day with a bowl of celery soup and a Daiya grilled cheese.
On the side, I whipped up some of my Mashed Sweet Taters:
Another cookbook recipe, these simple sweet potatoes come together quickly and make for a wholesome, creamy side dish. By the way, tonight when I was eating the leftovers, I discovered that the potatoes were especially delicious topped with a little raw coconut butter. Yum!
By the way, I've noticed that some bloggers are ending posts with questions for commenters. I enjoy answering them on other people's blogs, so I think I'll start this too. Soo ...
Question: What's your favorite dish that your mama (or daddy) makes?
