Skillet cornbread for a hearty side dish on Meatless Monday

Cornbread is right up there with potato salad and grits as a good, old-fashioned, home-style side. And yes, it can be vegan -- making it a great pairing with a bean-based soup (last week's Southwestern-style stew, for example). Adapted for altitude from Veganomicon, this version is a country-flavored favorite.
