Yes, I just substituted it for the buttermilk measure in the Laurel's Kitchen recipe. I also substituted whole grain yellow corn grits for some of the cornmeal, and added a few tablespoons of flaxmeal to the batter, for a wonderful grainy texture.

My friend Gil says the best cornbread is always baked in a cast iron skillet.

Hi Broomflower, I just saw this. I have all of those except te New York Times Natural Foods, I will look for that one. I was just thinking last night about looking for a non-meat sausage recipe - as i'm replacing things TheAquarian and I eat with vegetarian versions. We are spending a lot of time sitting in the car "discussing" dinner...since I decided t phase myself back to vegetarian. <G> This menas a lot more cooking for me as it's harder to find good vegetarian food to just grab and take out. In busy phases like we have been in this past month, I might pick up a turkey pie or some merguez sausages at the local general Store and cook some couscous or make a salad...I'm thinking about replacing with quesadillas, vegetarian sausages, frittata, pasta with nuts and goat cheese,for examples.

Thanks for the idea, I'm trying to expand the vegetarian section of my cookbook collection.

This is real old fashioned vegetarian food, but I like ths one.

Meatless Meatloaf

Ingredients:
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
2 TB olive oil
One onion, diced
One large garlic clove, minced(more, to taste)
One large carrot, peeled and grated
Two celery ribs, diced
One cup mushrooms, cleaned and chopped
2 cups mixed cooked beans
1 cup dry whole wheat bread crumbs
1/4 to 1/2 cup tomato juice, as needed
3 TB potato flour (can use quinoa flour, I actually prefer it)
1/2 tsp. dried sage
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/4 cup minced fresh Italian parsley
2 TB ketchup
Several dashes vegetarian Worcestershire Sauce
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
salt to taste

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 350º. Spray a loaf pan or 8x8 square baking pan with nonstick spray and set aside (an 8x8 pan makes a crisper loaf).
Grind the sunflower seeds into a coarse meal using a food processor or spice/coffee grinder. Place in a large mixing bowl and set aside.
Sauté the vegetables in the olive oil until soft. Add to the large mixing bowl along with all the remaining ingredients. Mix and mash together well, adding only as much liquid as needed to create a soft, moist loaf that holds together and is not runny (you may not need to add any liquid if the grains and protein are very moist). Add more binder/carbohydrate as needed if the loaf seems too wet.
Press mixture into the prepared pan and bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until cooked through.
Let the loaf cool in the pan for 10 to 15 minutes, then turn out onto a plate or platter and slice. Serve with potatoes, vegetables, and vegetarian gravy, if desired.
Cold leftover slices make a great sandwich filling

What kind of beans do you use?
