A Recipezaar 2005 adoptee. My daughter is vegetarian and this looks like a low fat, vegan casserole that would be quick and easy to prepare. From The Vegetarian Gourmet's Easy Low-Fat Favorites.

- 3/4 teaspoon dry mustard
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Corn Bread Topping
- 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- 2Lightly grease a 7 x 11 inch baking pan, or spray with nonstick spray. (Do NOT substitute a 9 x 13 pan-- it's too big.).

- 6Put onions and green peppers in a large bowl.

- 10Stir in 1/2 cup water, honey, and oil, mixing until moistened. Add remaining water if mixture is too thick to spread.
- 11Drop by spoonfuls onto bean mixture; then spread to cover completely.
