Vegan, Gluten-Free, and Under 300 Calories: Polenta and Beans

Vegan and Gluten-Free Polenta and Beans

Ingredients

1 teaspoon olive oil
2 tubes of polenta
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 box (26 ounces) Pomi chopped tomatoes
1 red pepper, diced
2 cups frozen corn
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Pour olive oil in a large pan and heat on medium.
  2. Remove both tubes of polenta from the plastic wrap and cut into half-inch-size slices. Place slices in the pan as if you were cooking pancakes.
  3. While the polenta is cooking, place the garlic, beans, tomatoes, red pepper, corn, and spices in a saucepan. Cook uncovered on medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes.
  4. While the bean mixture is cooking, check on the polenta. Once the bottoms are lightly browned, flip each piece to cook the other side.
  5. Place four pieces of polenta on each plate and top with one-sixth of the bean and veggie mixture.
