Serves 3-4
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 1 (16-20 oz) tube pre-made polenta
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 (15.5 oz) can low-sodium cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 5-6 leaves Swiss chard, stems removed and leaves sliced into ribbons

In a nonstick frying pan over medium-low heat, warm 1 tablespoon olive oil. Remove polenta from packaging and slice into 8-10 slices. Sprinkle each side with salt and pepper and place in pan. Cook until one side is brown and crisp, 5-6 minutes. Flip and cook until other side is crisp, another 5-6 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in another frying pan over medium-low heat. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add beans and allow to warm up, about 3 minutes. Add chard to pan and stir until chard begins to wilt, 3-4 minutes. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until chard is tender, another 2-3 minutes.

To serve, place polenta on a platter and top with bean-chard mixture.
