Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, sautÃ© the onion until it is just beginning to brown, stirring constantly. Add the green pepper and stir for 2 minutes. Add the garlic and sautÃ© for one more minute. Add the remaining ingredients, except for the nutritional yeast and crust ingredients. Mix well and pour into a 2-quart baking dish. Sprinkle with nutritional yeast.
Mix cornmeal with salt and stir in agave nectar. Beat in boiling water until mixture is smooth. Drop by spoonfuls over nutritional yeast and beans and spread to cover the surface.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until crusty.
*Any mild-tasting liquid sweetener will do--including rice syrup, corn syrup, honey, or barley malt syrup.
