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
4 T. EVOO
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!
