I created polentil after making Brown Rice Lentil burgers and had far too many lentils leftover. The result was fantastic.





1 lb. tube of plain polenta


2 c. red sauce

1 c. lentils



Slice 1 tube of polenta into 1/2 inch thick rounds


(that looks like ham right now…but it’s not!)

Heat up the olive oil in a pan at medium heat, and add the polenta slices:


Saute for about 8 minutes, flipping the slices half way. Transport the rounds to a paper toil to rid of excess oil.



Meanwhile, heat up the red sauce in a sauce pan over medium low, add lentils.


After heated thoroughly, plate the polenta and top with the lentil mixture. Add parmesan cheese if you prefer.


Eaten with a simple spinach salad, this is a decadent but healthy dinner!

  4. The Polentil was amazing! I love the flavor of the polenta with the lentils. I did add some sauteed onions, mushrooms and spinach to the lentil and marinara mix – so good. I am adding this recipe to the rotation 🙂

    Thanks lady!
