Polenta and Greens

I love my greens and I figure you can never have enough greens in your diet. In this recipe, I used two varieties of kale straight from my garden but would work really well with the dark green Lacinato variety if available.  This Polenta and Greens recipe serves two as an entree and would pair really nice with a side salad.

Ingredients:
1/2 sweet onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 cups kale, chopped
1/4 cup parsley, chopped
1/2 cup polenta, yellow, (corn grits)
1 1/2 cups vegetable broth, organic, low sodium
1 teaspoon Aleppo pepper
salt and pepper to taste

Equipment Needed
Cutting Board
Sharp Knife
Wooden Spoon
Large Pot

How to
Stem the onions and garlic in a 1/2 cup of stock until tender.

Add remaining vegetable stock and bring to a boil.

Slowly add the polenta and reduce heat to medium low. Stir polenta mixture continuously until thickend.  Add the chopped kale.  Stir until wilted.  Add parsley, Aleppo pepper, salt and pepper to taste.  Serve hot.
