Polenta with caramelized onions + herbs (gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian)

Using packaged precooked polenta (the type that comes in a log) simplifies the process because the polenta requires only a warming in the microwave or on the stovetop.

  • coconut oil or oil of choice
  • yellow onion, diced
  • precooked polenta log, sliced and chopped
  • unsweetened milk of choice (such as soy, almond, coconut, or rice; optional)
  • herbes de Provence or dried or fresh chopped mixed herbs (such as thyme, rosemary, oregano, sage, or fennel)
  • kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  1. Warm oil in a pan over medium heat. Add onions, turn heat to medium-low, cover, and cook until soft. Uncover and continue cooking until lightly browned. Remove from the heat but keep the onions warm.
  2. Put the polenta into a large microwaveable bowl or in a saucepan, add a little water or milk, and mash it with a fork. Microwave or cook, covered, until heated through. Add more water or milk to get the consistency you want and cook until heated through.
  3. Stir the onions and herbs into the polenta. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve.
