Roasted Veggies With Polenta My Way

Jo Zimny


This recipe was inspired by Giada Delaurentis but I have changed some of the ingredients to accommodate what I had on hand in my kitchen. A combination of your favorite veggies is all you need to prepare. The polenta is so creamy and delicious. I also added some extra ingredients to it as well.

How to Make Roasted Veggies With Polenta My Way

  7. In a skillet, saute the onion and pepperoncini pepper on medium heat for a few minutes until the onion is transparent, then add the garlic being careful not to burn it.
  8. Then add a little of the hot broth to the skillet and mix around, then add it all back into the heated broth.
  9. Using a whisk, gradually stir in the polenta mixing as you go so the polenta doesn't clump.
