Great Ways to Use Cornmeal

Make Cornbread

Cornbread is a crowd pleaser. Make skillet cornbread or muffins to go with a big bowl of vegan chili. If you're gluten-free, you can use 100 percent cornmeal instead of a flour mix. 

Make Cornmeal Porridge

Running out of breakfast ideas? Try cornmeal porridge. It's rich, creamy, simple and delicious—everything you want out of your breakfast. Use any vegan milk, sweetener and toppings you love. 

Make Tortillas

Sometimes the tortillas you see in the grocery store have extra ingredients you're trying to avoid. If that's the case, make your own tortillas with cornmeal, all-purpose flour, salt and oil. That's it! It's super easy, and you'll probably prefer the homemade tortillas to the store-bought kind.
