Chili & Gluten-Free Cornbread Recipes for a Super Bowl Feast

Chili & Gluten-Free Cornbread Recipes for a Super Bowl Feast

My friend green Diva Gina was inspired to share her family’s turkey chili and gluten-free cornbread recipes for the impending Super Bowl festivities. Read GD Gina’s original post here.

I’m not a huge football fan, but like a true foodie, for me it is always about creating a yummy and healthy menu of goodies. I’m not sure how or why chili became a standard for Super Bowl Sunday, but we’ve come up with a fun vegan version that everyone loves and looks forward to.

So, here are two chili recipes — one turkey, one vegan — and an awesome gluten-free cornbread recipe (for nutrition details, please visit the original post).

Listen to this fun Green Divas Foodie-Philes podcast to hear the details, and of course the recipes are below!

Serves 12


3 eggs – lightly beaten

1 1/2 cups fine cornmeal
1 cup millet flour
1 cup rice flour
1/2 cup organic white sugar

  • Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a circular baking pan about 10 inches in diameter.
  • Whisk together the eggs, water, and vegetable oil in a bowl until evenly blended; set aside. Stir together the cornmeal, millet flour, rice flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a separate large bowl, and make a well in the center. Pour the liquid mixture into the well and stir just until combined.
