Fake "Corn" Casserole, Corn- Free of Course! (dairy-free, soy-free, gluten-free, nut and seed free)

If you live in the South, and probably the midwest, you have experienced corn casserole. Until we moved to Florida years and years ago I had never heard of it. Over the years I have sampled some "good" and some "bad" versions. Either way I tend to enjoy them, they are forever a part of every potluck and bbq. We opted to make a "mexican" and corn free version. Well cooked chickpea's instead of corn worked great! I often use coarsely ground millet to replace corn meal and to our surprise we prefer the flavor. the millet is more delicate in texture and flavor plus has better value then corn anyway. We don't miss cornmeal at all! The flavor on this reminds us of a deconstructed tamale- we were very pleased. I topped it with some coconut sour cream and a bit of parsley. Cilantro would be nice and if Abby and Sara were not allergic, I would have used it. I was out of green pepper and fresh jalapeno's but if I have some next time I make this I will throw some of those in too!

3 whole Eggs
2 cups coconut yogurt(homemade)
2 Tablespoons grapeseed Oil
2 cups soaked and well cooked chickpeas
1 diced red pepper
1 small onion, finely diced.
1/2 cup water or alternative milk
⅔ cup Gluten free All-purpose Flour
½ cup coarsly ground millet (coffee grinder or single serve on the Ninja)
1 Tablespoons Sugar(domino's)
1 Tablespoon Baking Powder(Hain's or Homemade)
1 1/2 teaspoons Salt(pink himalayan) (we liked it best with more salt)
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper(simply Organic) (feel free to add more if you like more heat)
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon turmeric(The turmeric and paprika give this the great yellow color)
1 teaspoon paprika(smoked tastes great if you have one you tolerate)
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Preparation Instructions
1. Mix the wet ingredients first and then mix in the dry ingredients(don't over mix, just till combined)
2. Pour into a greased baking dish.
3. Bake at 350 for 45-55 minutes, or until golden brown and set in the middle (give it a shake – it shouldn’t jiggle too much in the middle) Serve hot.
