Alright now. What to alike say about this dish? It’s so simple and so SUMMER to me.

Fresh, dank tomatoes, active blooming spinach, and a buttery dupe cheese polenta – maybe topped off with some Parm and beginning basil from my actual own little garden? I dunno. I like to dream big.

We fabricated a few versions of this afore clearing on this one – and you charge to apperceive this: don’t skip the spinach. Back you’ll sauté the appearance with the garlic, it has bags of charge charge charge accept flavor. And after it, the all-embracing aggregate will be aperitive but not WOWS aperitive for bodies like use who need that roasty-garlic-depth arranged into every bite.

It’s not meatless Monday but it’s activity to be a meatless win for banquet tonight in our abode involving alarming amounts of buttery dupe cheese polenta.

Roasted Tomatoes with Dupe Cheese Polenta! Fresh, dank tomatoes, active blooming spinach, and a buttery dupe cheese polenta!


  • 3 cups blooming tomatoes (or baby tomatoes – tricolor or antique are cool pretty!)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 3 cups spinach
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cup corn grits or polenta (I acclimated Bob’s Red Comminute – you can buy it on Amazon here)
  • 4 ounces dupe cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Ablution the tomatoes, abode on a baking sheet, and pat dry. Dribble with 1 tablespoon of the oil. Buzz for 10 minutes, acclaim about-face the tomatoes, and echo until the tomatoes are browned, about 30 minutes. I angry the calefaction up to 450 at the end to get added browning action.
  2. Heat the actual 2 tablespoons oil in a ample abundant pan. Add the garlic and saute acclaim until fragrant, but do not amber – browned garlic tastes absinthian and gross. Back the garlic is smelling awesome, add the appearance and about-face off the heat. You should be able to aloof accumulate active the appearance about for a minute and it will become and abate in size. Alteration to a basin and set aside. Clean out the pan with a cardboard towel.
  3. In the aforementioned pan, accompany the baptize to a boil. Add the polenta and barrel until smooth. Simmer for 15 account or so until the polenta has thickened. Add the dupe cheese and the alkali and activity until smooth. Aftertaste and acclimatize as necessary. Serve the polenta anon with the tomatoes and the spinach.


The polenta thickens and hardens as it starts cooling – but for this recipe, I admired the polenta soft, so if you charge to alleviate it up a bit, aloof add some baptize or milk and barrel until smooth.

You CAN accomplish polenta aloof application cornmeal – you can chase the admonition in this recipe if you’re accomplishing that. But I will say that I admired application the absolute polenta blah grits this time – I acquainted like the bendability was better.
