Grilled Polenta & Greens

This meal is quick and delicious. Perfect for those nights where you don't have a lot of time to make a fancy dish.

What you will need:
6 cups fresh greens (kale, spinach, collard, mustard - whatever you have)
1/4 cup vegetable stock
1 tube of polenta
2 tbsp olive oil
garlic powder, sea salt & pepper to taste

1. Heat olive oil in a skillet. Slice polenta into 3/4" rounds and sprinkle both sides with garlic powder and pepper. Place flat into skillet. Cook for 5-10 minutes depending on how crispy you want it. Flip each disc to cook other side.

2. Heat vegetable stock in a large wok. Once stock is bubbling, add fresh greens a dash of sea salt & pepper. Toss continuously until green have cooked down.

3. Pile greens onto plate and place 3-4 slices on polenta on top.


  1. And you get it all at TJ's. Now I am craving this. You made what you say is an easy meal look like a 5 star meal! Great plating.

  2. It's been a while since I've had polenta. Hmmmm, now you have me thinking.

  3. Polenta is one of those foods I always mean to buy / make and somehow never do. This recipe has me inspired to get organised for some this week :)

  4. Hmmm, I don't think we have the out-of-the-tube polenta, so I'd have to make it cookable first, but sounds like a yummy dinner!

  5. Yum!! I couldn't resist putting this on my blog's mid-MoFo roundup post. :)
