Vegan Polenta with Meatless "Meat" Crumbles

Polenta is coarsely ground cornmeal. The beauty of it is that you can make a whole host of dishes that are tasty and innovative.
It sets wonderfully and you can stuff it, slice it, and make many different kinds of recipes with it. This is a delicious way to prepare polenta.

Prepare a recipe of meatless crumble, either from scratch, or use your favorite meat substitute recipe and a spaghetti recipe. Set aside but keep warm.

Prepare 1 recipe of your favorite spaghetti-style tomato sauce.
Prepare Polenta
you will need:
4 cups of water
1 cup medium-grain yellow Polenta
1 cup frozen corn, thawed
1/2 cup tofu, drained, chopped (this is to make the polenta more creamy)
Salt to taste
1 Tbsp. chopped onion
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 Tbsp. Anaheim peppers, seeded and chopped

Put in the blender the frozen corn with the tofu, the onion, the peppers, and a very little amount of water and process till creamy. Bring water to a boil, add the mixture of frozen corn and the salt to taste, add the Polenta in a slow, steady stream and with a wooden spoon, begin to stir it quickly until fully incorporated. Continue to cook it and stir it, for between 20 and 40 minutes, until it gets thick and it doesn't adhere to the sides of the pot.
Serve in individual portions and cover with the sauce, topping with the Meatless "Meat" Crumbles, topping with more sauce.
If you would like the crumbles to be saucy, cook them in some of the prepared tomato sauce.
Enjoy!

      I know what you mean. I have known many vegan kitches where health was paramount but tasty was left out. My middle name is flavor. I don't like cooking that does not taste well, so I wouldn't offer it to anyone else.

      Thank you for the recipe. Polenta is a traditional dish in the part of northern Italy, where I am from, and my parents often eat it but I don't like it much because I find it a bot tasteless. This recipe sounds tasty, and I will give it a try. I look forward to reading more vegan recipes from you.

      Nice recipe, we in South Africa call it crumbled porridge, and meat sauce.

      As I do not like Tofu, I would use chick peas as "meat".

      Thanks for the recipe
