Quickand easy~ I created this meal in about 15 minutes~seriously!! You will love the Green Chili Polenta with Cilantro. It is one of the easiest meals you will ever create. First, you purchase the Green Chili Polenta with Cilantro and your favorite healthy spaghetti sauce. You will find Polenta with both the spaghetti sauces and in the Mexican food section. I found the Green Chili Polenta with the Mexican foods at Whole Foods.
|Ingredients in Polenta |
Water, Organic Yellow Corn Meal, Mild Green Chilies, Salt, Organic Cilantro, Organic Cumin, Tartaric Acid, Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Beta Carotene (Vitamin A).
Second, while you are warming your Polenta, make your Cucumber Slaw. Use a Julienne peeler like the one below from Williams-Sonoma to quickly create long thin slices of both 1 cucumber and 2 carrots. Add in 5 sliced green olives if desired. Put 1 tablespoon of your favorite healthy Italian type dressing on it.

1/2 jar of your favorite spaghetti sauce
5 green olives (optional)
1 Tbsp. favorite Italian dressing
1. Slice the Polenta into 1/2 inch rings and warm in a pan (do not use oil-it will ruin the polenta and cause it to fall apart) Cook on both sides. Warm red sauce.
2. Make Cucumber Slaw by slicing cucumber and carrots into long thin strips with Julienne slicer and add sliced green olives. Add Italian dressing as desired.
3. Slice apple.
