King Trumpet mushrooms, also called King Oyster, are the largest mushroom in the oyster mushroom species. Known for their thick stumpy stems and flat caps, these firm mushrooms deliver a burst of umami flavor and add heartiness to this vegetarian chili. To add more flavor to the traditional cornbread, we added sautéed jalapeno peppers and cheddar cheese.

Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel and mince the garlic. Small dice the green bell and jalapeño peppers, discarding the seeds. (Wash your hands afterwards, and don’t touch your eyes.) Cut the mushrooms into ½-inch pieces. Grate the cheddar cheese. Drain and rinse the black beans. Roughly chop the cilantro. Peel and small dice the onion. Thinly slice the scallion.
Make the cornbread:
2 Make the cornbread:
In a medium pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add half the jalapeño and cook 1 to 2 minutes, or until somewhat softened. Remove from the heat and let cool slightly. Grease the loaf pan with a little oil. In a medium bowl, combine the cornbread mix, the egg, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, and 1¼ cups of water. Fold in the cooked jalapeño pepper, half the cheddar cheese, and some salt and pepper until blended. (Save the remaining cheese for garnish.) Pour the batter into the loaf pan until it’s about ¾ full (you may have extra batter) and bake for 26 to 28 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.

Cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until the vegetables begin to brown, stirring occasionally.
