Veggielicious polenta bake

Tried a new dish called polenta bake with veggie stuff for hubby and Laura’s lunch box tomorrow and it’s OMG delicious! So good I had to share.

Prep time 30 minutes
Serves 3 – 4 people

  • 1 pumpkin, peeled, de-seeded and cut into cubes
  • Herbs of your choice (I used Italian mixed herbs) 
  • 500mls of stock (I used veggie stock)
  • 1 cup of polenta 
  • 100g of greens stuff (I used baby spinach, I think baby kale would be delicious too) 
  • Jar of stuffed bell peppers
  • Handful of sliced cherry tomatoes or whatever veggies you have on hand, olives, capsicum or mushrooms would be nice. 
  • 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese or whatever cheese substitute you prefer
Veggielicious Polenta Bake

Roast pumpkin with oil and herbs for 20 mins at 200’C. 
Boil stock, then slowly pour the polenta and stir continuously on low heat for 8 mins. When ready stir in 50% of the cheese in mixture. Add the roasted pumpkin.
Scoop out polenta onto a baking dish, push handfuls of the green stuff into the polenta, decorate with bell peppers, cherry tomatoes and the remaining cheese then bake for 20 mins.

Oh and season with salt and pepper whenever you like, at the end when serving, perhaps before baking or when cooking the polenta. 

Tadaaaaah! Your welcome.

Tip: You could also swap out the pumpkin for zucchini or sweet potato and totally go crazy with the garlic and spices.  Let me know if you try it and what you changed for your tasty buds.
