Healthy Vegetarian Polenta
Empyrean13 posted:
I just made this last night. It's polenta with ground flaxseed, ricotta cheese for creaminess and a mix of asiago, parmesan and romano cheeses. Another topping with this is some good marinara of your choice. It makes about 4 servings.

2/3 cup of Polenta
Chicken Broth (probably about 3-4 cups. Start with 2 and keep adding as the polenta cooks)
Add about 4 tablespoons of ground flaxseed
About 1/4 to 1/3 cup of Ricotta cheese
About 1/4 to 1/3 cup of Asiago, Parm & Romano cheese blend
Salt and Pepper to taste.

Cook the polenta and then add the flaxseed, cheeses, salt and pepper to taste.

Chop about 1/2 to a cup a cup of spinach per person
Slice 1 romano tomato per person
Chop about 4 leaves of fresh basil per person

Sprinkle the spinach on the bottom of a bowl or plate, top with polenta (about a cup to 1.5 cups). Pour some of the marinara over the polenta and then put the slices of tomato around the polenta and sprinkle the fresh basil on the top.

This is quick & easy to make and is a fabulous small meal that's full of surprise flavors and is super healthy.

You can make even more interesting by adding some sauteed onions and garlic in a white wine reduction, add thyme or oregano... all kinds of things to really make this simple dish pop out on a plate. The beautiful colors really play off of each other, too.

Oh, and I use Kosher salt instead of table salt. Even a nice mineral sea salt might be good, too.

I love polenta! This sounds divine.

Thanks for posting. I think we should share more recipes on this board.
