Recipe For Polenta With Beans and Veggie Sausage

Hearty Breakfast: Polenta With Beans and Veggie Sausage

Polenta is a huge hit for dinner at my house, especially when I make polenta pizzas. This corn-based food is also great for other meals of the day, and recently I concocted this yummy dairy-free breakfast dish. It's so simple to make, and since it has beans, veggie sausage, and eggs, it's also high in protein.

For details on how to make this breakfast,

Polenta With Beans and Veggie Sausage

Ingredients

1/2 tube Green Chile & Cilantro Ancient Harvest Polenta
1 cup black beans
2 veggie sausage patties (I used Morningstar Farms), diced
2 eggs
8 tablespoons Newman's Own Organic Chunky Salsa, medium
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Place the half a tube of polenta in a pan and flatten it down with a fork, cooking it over medium heat until soft. Add the beans and mix thoroughly. Cook for another few minutes and them remove from heat.
  2. In a separate pan, heat the cut up veggie sausage. Add the two eggs and stir. Remove from heat once the eggs are scrambled.
  3. Scoop the polenta mixture onto four plates. Divide the eggs and place on the polenta and beans. Add two tablespoons salsa on top of each. Serve hot and enjoy!

Morningstar Farms uses milk in their patties. Egg is not a dairy product, it is an animal byproduct. Dairy refers to milk products from a mammal. I don't eat eggs, but this looks good!

Also I think that morningstar farms uses egg whites in their patties.

Eggs are dairy. I mean I get what you're mean by "dairy free" but they are. Recipe sounds great...I'll make it without eggs;)
