It's Meal Prep Monday, and Roasted Greek Vegetables with Polenta is one of my favorite meal prep recipes! It's perfect because it's filling, packed with yummy vegetables, and it happens to be vegan! I make a huge batch and divide it into my meal prep containers to have during the week!
What is polenta?
"Polenta is really a dish, not an ingredient, from northern Italy. It refers to a porridge or mush now made from coarsely ground cornmeal since corn was cultivated in Europe in the 16th century, but was also in the past made with farro, chestnuts, millet, spelt or chickpeas. Polenta is usually made from yellow corn. " - The Kitchn
I love buying the tube of already made polenta, and slicing it into quarter inch rounds. I crisp them up in the oven, or fry them in a skillet. When you crisp them in the oven the key is to make sure they don't stick to the pan, so make sure you put down parchment paper or use my favorite silicone mats! If you can't find the polenta (we use the tube of polenta) this recipe would be great over quinoa (even more protein!), rice, or grits!
If you where wondering about what containers I use they are Bento Box ... I love having matching container all lined up in the fridge full of delicious food. It makes me happy.
