  • 3 cups of dry cubed or crumbled cornbread

  • 2 cups vegetable stock
  • 1 tbsp safflower or sunflower oil
  • 1 cup finely chopped onion
  • ½ cup chopped radishes

  1. Sauté the onion, radishes, and turnips in oil until lightly browned and translucent (about 3-5 minutes)
  2. Then add in the greens, chives, oregano, rosemary, sage, thyme, ground celery seed, salt and pepper and cook for 1 minute more.
  3. Once the mixture has become fragrant add in the vegetable stock and bring to a boil then immediately reduce to a simmer. Combine the cornbread and rice with the stock, turning to
    ensure even absorption.
  4. Continue to heat on low until all the moisture has been soaked into the cornbread and rice. Serve immediately or, if desired, bake in a preheated oven at 375 degrees in a lightly greased casserole dish for 20 minutes.
