"Cheesy" Sage Polenta Topped with Roasted Brussels Sprouts

What a week and it's only Tuesday!  Instead of getting into the craziness of it all - I figured I would share a dish I made last week - instead!

"Cheesy" Sage Polenta Topped With Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Recipe for Polenta Part:

1 C Polenta 
3 to 4 C Water
1/4 C Sage
2 T Earth Balance (or Oil of your choice)
1/2 C Nutritional Yeast

Recipe for Roasted Brussels Sprouts Part:

1/2 Pound Brussels Sprouts, halved
Grapeseed Oil, drizzled
Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder, to taste

I topped the Polenta with the Brussels Sprouts and sprinkled more Nutritional Yeast on top.

This was SO GOOD!  This was a wonderful comfort food.  It was warming to the body, heart, and soul and was more filling than I thought it would be!  I will certainly be making this again in the near future!

    1. Thanks for the feedback! I was so surprised at just how flavorful it was! YUM!

  2. OMG - yum! This would make a lovely Healthy Vegan Friday contribution =)
    I love brussels sprouts and am so happy to see them at the market right now. I just can't eat enough of them and I love the sound of the polenta.

    1. I know what you mean! I've always enjoyed them but the older I get I can't get enough of them! I have been way behind on blogging but hope to post over at Healthy Vegan Fridays if not today SOON :)

    2. Thanks for bringing it over to HVF! I have pinned your recipe to our board =)

  3. Hi Jennifer! I just found you through your comment on Veggie Quest, and I LOVE your blog! Also, this recipe looks easy, tasty, and comforting (I'm a huge fan of both polenta and Brussels sprouts). Also looks easy to modify to make oil free. Just started following you on BlogLovin; looking forward to more fun posts and delish recipes!

    1. Hi there! Thanks so much for visiting and commenting! And for the feedback on my blog! You TOTALLY made my day! It's VERY easy and comforting and I think I might make it again soon! I think it would be very easy to make oil free...maybe roast some sweet onion with the brussels sprouts instead of oil...might have to just keep an eye on them closer so they don't burn as fast. I hope to swing by your place again soon! Thanks again!
