This dish is a great way to use all of the wonderful vegetables that are in season. Feel free to substitute your favorite vegetables, or whatever is fresh at the farmer’s market (or your backyard)!

Using a cornbread mix makes the dish come together quickly, just be sure to make sure the ingredients are vegetarian or vegan.  The sweetness of the corn in the bottom goes really well with the sautéed vegetables!
