One of my favorite convenience foods is the pre-cooked polenta the comes in the tube. You can usually find it in the produce section by the tofu, don’t ask me why. This is my favorite way to use the polenta and it is quick and easy, so it is great for a weeknight dinner. You can add anything that you would like for the toppings, so it is also good for cleaning veggies that need to be used out of your fridge. Just serve it with a salad and you will have a great meal.
1 tube of pre-cooked polenta
1 jar of pasta sauce
1 cup soy ground beef style crumbles, TVP or diced veggie sausage (optional)
2 cups diced veggies such as spinach, zucchini, tomatoes, peppers or olives (optional)
1 cup vegan mozzarella cheese
Preheat the oven to 375. Slice the polenta into 1/4 inch rounds and line the bottom of a small baking dish with them. In a small sauce pan over medium heat combine the sauce, crumbles and veggies. Once it is heated through top the polenta with the sauce and the cheese. Bake for 20-25 minutes until the cheese is melted and the sauce is bubbly. Let cool for at least 5 minutes before serving.
