For November’s edition of #RPLRecipeClub, we’re diving into the cozy season with my epic Vegan Cornbread. It’s the perfect accompaniment to the warming soups & stews, chilis, and more that you’ll consume at fall gatherings and Thanksgiving this year!

Last Month’s Winner
The winner of the October 2023 RPL Recipe Club is Zoe Z.!
Congratulations, Zoe, and thank you to everyone who entered October’s contest. I had so much fun seeing all of your entries and I’m already looking forward to this month’s contest.
November 2023 Recipe: Vegan Cornbread!
After 20 recipe tests, I can genuinely say this is the best cornbread I’ve eaten in my entire life! This extensive testing resulted in a wonderfully crispy-crusted, buttery cornbread that’s bursting with tons of corn flavor, has the perfect amount of crumble, and just enough sweetness. When eaten warm, it’s basically the best thing ever.
The blog post includes five secret techniques that make for the best vegan cornbread you’ll ever eat, as well as instructions for how to make this recipe gluten-free (it actually turns out amazingly well, perhaps because the recipe doesn’t call for too much flour).
This cornbread is best served alongside dishes like my Vegan Chili, White Bean Stew, or even as part of a BBQ plate with my BBQ tempeh and Vegan Mac and Cheese. Oh, and it might be my favorite Thanksgiving side dish!
The blog post also has full written instructions, a plethora of tips for making the recipe, and ingredient substitutions, so be sure to check it out!
This crispy-crusted, buttery, and moist vegan cornbread is truly the best cornbread you’ll ever eat. A must-make, whether paired with vegan chili or on your holiday table! No one will know it’s vegan (easy to make GF).
November 2023 Prize:
This month, we’re delighted to give away a Fellow Stagg EKG Electric Kettle!
The Stagg EKG Electric Kettle is a staple appliance in my household! This quick-heating temperature-controlled kettle can always be found on my kitchen counter. I use it for making tea (did you know green tea tastes better at 175° F than it does when you make it with boiling water?); Max swears by it for his morning coffee. And the design is gorgeous.
Select a temperature between 104 and 212 degrees and monitor the real-time temperature via the LCD screen. The kettle can also maintain the desired temperature for up to an hour!
A note for international readers: Due to the exorbitant cost of international shipping, we can only ship the above prize within the 48 contiguous United States. However, you can still enter to win if you live elsewhere. If your entry is selected as the winner, we’ll send you a payment of $100 in lieu of the prize. Payment will be sent via PayPal.
