Grilled Polenta with Veggies

Another quick meal. Grilled polenta with veggies and tomato sauce. This dish seems a little strange, but it is soooo yummy and quite healthy. I use Trader Joe's pre-cooked polenta, but it is easy enough to make too.

Grilled Polenta with Veggies

pre-cooked polenta
organic veggies; carrots, cauliflower, broccoli (any veggies you like)
organic tomato sauce (any kind you like)
raw walnuts

Cut polenta into rounds about 1 inch thick. Grill on a grill pan for 10 minutes or until warm all the way through. Steam veggies. Heat tomato sauce. Make a bed of arugula and put a small amount of tomato sauce in three spots on top of arugula. Lay a grilled polenta circle on each tomato sauce spot. Garnish each polenta circle with additional tomato sauce and a walnut. Top dish with grilled veggies and additional crumbled walnuts.

It is surprisingly filling and so easy to make.

Oh yeah, I forgot, feta cheese goes really well sprinkled on top of this dish. Unfortunately I am dairy free for a while and am not eating cheese. BUT, if you make this dish, sprinkle feta on top and it is 10 times yummier.
