Pasta isn’t the only food Italians have perfected. Similar to grits in the south, polenta is a paste or dough made from cornmeal. Cooked low and slow on the stove with with water, parmesan cheese, butter and salt, this recipe tops off this comfort food with some garlic, red chili flake & thyme roasted bell peppers, tomatoes, zucchini and red onion. A great meal to change it up with, it takes only 40 minutes and offers flavors even the pickiest meat lovers will enjoy.
If there was a contest for the king of comfort food, chili would have a good run for the top. Bold flavors and hearty ingredients served up in a satiating sauce are an amazing way to warm up on a cold day. This vegetarian version is a white chili that gets its creaminess from a warm milk seasoned with onion, garlic and cumin. Featuring onion, bell pepper, jalapeño, beans and corn, you can add some extra flair by adding cilantro, avocado, tortilla chips, pickled jalapenos, radish slices or hot sauce.
