I love polenta. A mainstay of Italian cuisine, it's often overshadowed by the likes of its older stepsisters, pizza and pasta. But for those who are keen on adopting a more gluten-free lifestyle, polenta is full of unlimited possibilities as substitute for our favorite wheat-based carbs.
Polenta contains vitamins A and C, and a single serving alone has as much protein as a large egg. Accompanied by nutrient-dense greens like Swiss chard and oodles of mouthwatering roasted veggies, this “polenta pie” is sure to please even those who are most skeptical of gluten-free cuisine. I made this once without cheese or butter for a neighbor who is gluten and dairy free, and she loved it. There are infinite possibilities for vegetable choices, so use whatever is on hand. If you’re cooking for a group, just double the recipe for a beautiful and bountiful pie. Just be sure to place a baking sheet underneath, in case it spills over the edges.
