Roasted Winter Vegetables with Cheesy Polenta

November/December 2007

Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (66 votes)

Creamy polenta laced with sharp Parmigiano-Reggiano makes a savory bed for sweet roasted vegetables. Butternut squash and cauliflower florets are called for, but you could vary the combination of roasted vegetables depending on the season or your cravings at the moment. Complete the meal with a salad of assertive winter greens.



READER'S COMMENT:
"Very easy and very tasty! I did one naughty but delicious thing, I added 2 spoonfuls of mascarpone cheese to the polenta (it was leftover and I don't like to waste)! I'm sure it would be very good without it! Will make again! "

Absolutley wonderful! It was my first time trying polenta, and it was sooo good. I couldn't get it smooth though, but the little lumps didn't take away any of the deliciousness. And the veggies...YUM!

The vegetables are amazing, sweet, salty, and filling. But I would highly recomend making the polenta in a double boiler, as the first time I made the recipe, the polenta seized, and as a result was grainy. Also, I prefer to make the polenta w/o the broth, and just the water. Fewer calories, and the flavor of the corn is stronger.

We used fresh garlic and mixed it with the vegetables. We roasted them at 350 degrees until the onions and garlic caramelized (1 hour?), which enriched the flavor considerably. Best roasted vegetables to date in our house.

I was very happy with this recipe and my family loved it. The parmesan cheese in the polenta is wonderful. I also like the combination of vegetables and having a new way to prepare butternut squash. I am planning to prepare it casserole style as a side dish at Thanksgiving.

Yum! This was the first time I ever made polenta and it was super easy. I'm definitely keeping this recipe on hand for busy nights when I don't have much time to cook.
