Cornbread Lentil Casserole

I got this vegetarian recipe from a friend in CA...it is so good you won't miss the meat if you make a nice tossed salad and fresh fruit for dessert. So simple to put together and then just toss in the oven.

  • Prepare cornbread topping by mixing all ingredients until moistened.
  • Spoon lentil mixture into casserole, then spread topping evenly over lentil mixture.
  • Bake uncovered 15 to 20 minutes until topping is golden brown.
  • Loved the following with the green onion addition, too yummy!
  • **Used half of the following when I didn’t have Jiffy on hand. I also put some green onions in the corn bread.

Stir in egg, milk and vegetable oil until well combined. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.

    This is very good, and I made the cornbread mix from scratch. I found the cornbread topping too sweet, so next time will use only 1/4 cup of white sugar. Also, I'm going to add 1 cup of frozen corn to the lentil mixture.
