Bean Polenta Bake

black bean and polenta bake

This is a favourite in my household. Easy, nutritious, tasty & gluten free!

Serves 4


1 cup dried black beans

4 cups water

1.5 tsp salt

1 cup polenta

1/12 cup sliced green onion

2 cup garlic jack cheese (or cheddar) grated

½ pt. fresh salsa

½ can chopped green chillies


Cook beans. Refrigerate. In a large pot, bring 4 cups of water to a boil, add salt, add cornmeal slowly, stirring constantly. Cook 20 minutes or until thick enough to leave the sides of the pan. Mix in green onion and half of cheese. Pour half of this mixture into an 9” x 3 “ pan. Spread salsa over mixture, then black beans (drained), then chillies, then remaining cheese. Pour rest of polenta on top. Bake at 3500(F) for 20 mins. Let cool before cutting into servings.
