Spicy Corn and Poblano Soup with Honey and Sage Cornbread

This is the season for soup. Today I made a Spicy Corn and Poblano Soup. I wanted some bread to go with it.  I was in the mood for some cornbread, but with a twist.  I have had this idea in my mind for a week to make a Honey and Pistachio Cornbread. I did not have pistachios, but I did have some sage. It is a wonderful combination. Here’s the recipe and it’s gluten free. This version is a lighter version of this soup, still packed with lots of flavor.
