Black Bean Casserole with Cornbread Topping

This is easy, healthy, cheap, and tasty!


  • 2 1/2 cups cooked black beans (if you soak 1 cup of dry and cook them, you'll get the right amount. You can also use 2 (15 oz.) cans, but make sure to rinse the beans well before using)

  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup flour (I used spelt)
  • 1 Tbsp. raw sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 cup water


In a large saucepan, fry the onion in a little oil till translucent. Add beans and salsa and cook for another minute or two.

In a medium bowl, mix all other ingredients. Let sit for 5 minutes and stir again. Pour bean mixture in a greased dish (I use Pyrex dishes) and pour cornmeal mixture on top.

Bake at 400 degrees F for 30-35 minutes. Serve warm with guacamole on the side if desired.

This really sounds like a good Sunday evening meal for wintertime. I might use red beans just for a variation sometimes. Makes me hungry just thinking about it all nice and warm.


Thank you Lisa.
