Pour liquids over the dry ingredients and stir just until dry ingredients are moistened. Do not over mix. Coat an 8 x 8 inch baking pan with vegetable cooking spray. Pour batter into pan and bake at 400F for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool thoroughly, then crumble into a bowl. Heat the canola oil in a large nonstick skillet on medium-high heat. Add mushrooms, onion, garlic and thyme; saute 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Stir in crumbled cornbread, parsley, currants, pecans and pepper. Remove from heat. Place in container and keep refrigerated until ready to use.
