Korean Spiced Chili | with sweet cornbread

Spicy chili and the sweetest, cake-like cornbread merged together to make me incredibly happy with this meal. It’s been cold, drizzly, and the sun disappears sometime before I get off work…this is what I needed. This is what you need. This chili’s blend of Korean gochugaru, chipotle peppers in adobo and cumin are a mouth full of spice, love and warmth. Mine is vegan, and, wow, bring on the fake stuff!

Refrigerate before adding your almond milk if you think it’s melting too fast. Work quickly but do not overwork. Stop mixing as soon as it’s combined. You want those puppies to rise, not bake into flat rounds of sadness. Recipe adapted from: Smitten Kitchen Ingredients: 2 1/4 cups of flour + more for the counter 1 tsp of sugar 1 tbs of baking powder 1 tsp of baking soda 3/4 tsp of salt 9 tbs of vegan butter (I use an Australian brand, Better Than Butter.
