Super Greens with Polenta

Super Greens with Polenta

I’ll admit it, I was a strange child.  From a rather young age I greatly enjoyed vegetables (especially greens) and was known to trade away my lunch time sweets for carrot sticks – which I’m sure my classmates enjoyed.  That’s not to say I would always pick a healthy treat over something sweet, but it made the challenge for this week a bit more challenging than normal.  For /52weeksofcooking this week we are to cook with an ingredient we didn’t enjoy as a child, and that doesn’t leave me with much.  Many commonly avoided vegetables weren’t served in my house and the few things I remember avoiding as a kid I still don’t eat: cottage cheese, tapioca pudding, porridge, and meat.  Luckily my hubby was more of a “normal” child and gave me a rather large list of foods: broccoli, spinach, brussel sprouts, kale, cabbage, and anything spicy.  So essentially anything green, which gave me lots to work with.  I decided to pick a variety of greens, toss in some chickpeas, and serve everything over some baked polenta.

While I’m not sure which of us any future children might take after, it’ll be interesting to see where they fall when it comes to green food.  Tho worst case scenario I can always sneak it in…
