Veggies Dont Bite
Makes 16 pieces
· 1 sleeve of polenta (a sleeve is 18 ounces)
· 4 fresh tomatoes
· 2 cups arugula
· 1 can cannellini beans
· 2 teaspoons fresh chopped garlic
· juice of ½ a lemon
· A drizzle of olive oil (optional)
· Himalayan pink salt and ground black pepper to taste
· Miso Balsamic Dressing (see separate recipe)
note: You can also make your own polenta instead of buying it premade. I measure the arugula loosely packed.
Preheat oven to 400. Slice polenta into ¼ inch rounds, place on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 40 minutes or until they begin to get golden brown and crispy.
