Cornbread is so satisfying to eat. It also goes well with spice, so spiced potatoes and cornbread make an enjoyable vegan lunch. If you want to try another combination, we love our easy vegan cornbread with scrambled tofu mixed with turmeric, salt and pepper. 

To store your vegan cornbread, let it cool down completely and store it in an airtight container and refrigerate. You can also freeze the cornbread, again making sure it is cooled before you freeze it. 

The spicy potatoes are equally addictive and can be served as a vegan side dish to many of your other vegan meals. These spicy potatoes use thyme to give them more flavour, but you can also use rosemary.
