Polenta: It's Whats For Dinner!

It's great when you try something new and it just works! Just came up with this dish that has a polenta/yellow cornmeal base and it is so tasty. It has a nice rose-creme like sauce which is a refreshing feature in a vegan dish!

Serves 2

In a saucepan on the stove (medium heat):

1/2 cup cornmeal/polenta
2 cups water

add desired amount of chives, thyme, basil, parsley, oregano or 1 drop of oregano oil (add spices as desired such as chili, salt and pepper or any fresh herb such as cilantro!)

In a frying pan on the stove (high heat):

2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 can beans or chick peas
1/4 cup vegan cheese, grated (mozzerella or cheddar style)
1 yellow pepper, cut into strips
1/4 cup tomato sauce

garnish the dish with halved cherry tomatoes and a generous helping of cut up fresh green sprouts!

You may choose to serve this meal as two seperate parts or mix all of the ingredients together at the end et
