Print Recipe


  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup yellow corn meal
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 cup unsweetened plant milk
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar or lemon juice
  • cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup hatch chili salsa or your favorite salsa


  • Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) and grease a 9-inch baking pan or a cast-iron skillet.
  • Combine the plant-based milk and vinegar (or lemon juice), for the vegan buttermilk. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cornmeal, sugar, salt and baking powder.
  • Pour the buttermilk, olive oil and salsa into the dry ingredients mixture and stir until just combined.
    Be careful not to overmix, as this can result in a denser texture.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish or skillet, spreading it evenly.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean and the top is golden brown.
  • Allow the cornbread to cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving.
    Serve the cornbread warm with butter, or alongside your favorite soups, stews, or chili.
