DIRECTIONS

  • Combine tomatoes and boiling water.
  • Let stand 30 minutes, drain and chop.
  • Combine cornmeal and pinch of black pepper in saucepan.
  • Gradually add 3 cups broth and 1 cup water, stirring continually with a whisk.
  • Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium and cook for 20 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Remove polenta from heat and keep warm.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium high heat, add 1 tablespoon olive oil and saute onion and red pepper for about 10 minutes or until tender.
  • Add tomatoes and garlic, cooking for 1 more minute.
  • Add 1 cup broth and the greens.
  • Cover and reduce heat to low, cooking 15 minutes or until greens are completely tender.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Spoon polenta into 4 plates and top with greens.
  • Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
  • Since I like things spicy, I add some crushed red pepper to this recipe, or just shake on your favorite hot sauce.
  • For Vegetarian use the vegetable broth only.
