I almost called this post easy peasy but I thought, hey easy beansy is more appropriate right? :)
Anyway, with my corn bread, I made a simple nourishing (and inexpensive) soup my aunt taught me to make. It is so delicious! I had two bowls of it today :). It goes great with the my corn on the cob bread.
Here's the simple recipe. It can be made in a snap especially if you used canned beans or you already have some beans prepared.
Take your cooked beans and place the desired amount in your blender or food processor. Add a little water (about 1/4 c. to one cup of beans) and puree. Add more water if necessary, until you reach your desired consistency. Scoop out puree into a pan, warm, and then serve in bowls. Serve with corn on the cob bread! :) Enjoy!

This is version two above, made with 1 c. teff flour and no sweetener (but the rest is the same).
This is version one below, made with 1 c. whole wheat and following the recipe to exactness.
Here's my newest creation though! Corn on the Cob bread! Yum! I had never heard of this before but I was so intrigued with it that I decided that I would be making this soon! (Usually I just bookmark it thinking "That looks really good! I'll have to make that one of these days!" And then it sits there forever until I get back to it)
Not this time! Stephanie used raw kernels, but I had already cooked my corn so I decide to experiment anyway. The results! Mmm...So tasty! Very moist, and not crumbly or dry like most corn bread. You can really taste the sweet corn flavor too.
I made this twice this weekend. I tried leaving out the sweetener since the corn helps give it a sweet flavor but decided I would at least leave half of it in next time. Also, I think what I would try next time is to leave out the applesauce, leave in the agave, and just try that. I think that would produce the best results. But hey, I ran out of corn on the cob ok? :)
Also, if you use think that it would work better with a GF mix versus just one GF flour if you go that route. Still tasted good though. :)
Just a heads up, it will be quite crumbly when hot but as it cools, it is easier to cut and not as soft.
I still prefer it warm though, especially with "butter" or in my case "Earth Balance" and agave nectar on top! :)
As I was making these I had another idea. I think these would work great as muffins.
In any case, whether you use GF flour or not, the recipe below should work well for you. :) And it's sure delicious! I served it with my easy black bean soup. MMMM :)
Corn on the Cob Bread
- 2 ears of cooked corn on the cob (mine were large so that's about 1-3/4 c.-2 c. cooked corn, this allows you to use fresh corn anytime of year, even if you have to resort to frozen)
- 1 c. flour (GF mix or whole wheat, one time I used whole wheat and one time I used teff but I suggest a mix, see above explanation)
- 1/4 c. agave nectar or honey (I used agave)
- 1/4 c. applesauce (or oil, but my philosophy is to put it where you can taste it most-on the bread!)
- 4 t. baking powder
- 1-1/2 eggs (I used one whole egg and one egg white)
- 1/2 t. salt
