Polenta Recipe

I try each week to tackle motherhood, working, co-owning a business and trying to be creative in the kitchen. I have come a long way from thinking you boil the water for 7 minutes then you add the pasta sauce. We all have our strengths and weaknesses.

I would have a super picture for you of this great meal but I didn’t have the card in my camera as I snapped away.  Yes, I am embarrassed to admit that but I got the family fed. This recipe was submitted by Heather.  This was super yummy and easy. Thanks Heather!

Polenta the easy vegetarian dinner-

Polenta. (I cheated and bought the already made stuff at the grocery store)
Easy to make with cornmeal. (Just slowly add 1 cup of cornmeal into 3.5 cups boiling water, stir until thick. Spread into shallow dish. Cool. Then refrigerate. You can then cut into squares and heat as needed.) I added garlic powder and cumin to mine while cooking.

Top with 2 cans of drained black bean heated with tomatoes, cilantro, and peppers. ( I did yellow and red peppers one of each)

Then you can top with sour cream (or plain yogurt), cheese, salsa, and avocado. (We did all of the options and black olives)
