Eggplant/mushroom tomato polenta (low fat, gluten free)

This is one of our favorite meatless meals---wonderful. It tastes similar to eggplant parmasean but much lower in fat!!


We used the pre-made polenta which I found at Walmart near the tofu. It is an organic brand. You simply slice it up and heat it in microwave, oven or in the pan. My iron skillet works great--doesn't require any oil. Or to make polenta from scratch go here:

or here for a nice herbed polenta:

I sauteed some baby eggplant with some mushrooms and sprinkled them with oregano. I added some minced garlic when the veggies were nearly done. Just cook until nice and done and a little brown--I didn't have to use any oil in my iron skillet.
You place the polenta with your favorite spaghetti sauce and top with the eggplant mushroom combo!! It was great. We used my meatless low fat spaghetti sauce found: http://nannykimsrecipes.blogspot.com/2008/10/meatless-spaghetti-sauce.html

If you're looking for family friendly, healthy vegetarian recipes, you should check out the Meatless Mondays Recipe archives. The Corn and Squash Santa Fe Calabacitas are full of yummy veggies and is easy to cook on the stove in 20 minutes. There's also great Moroccan Pumpkin Stew featured right now. The recipe is in the front center of the homepage at http://www.meatlessmonday.com. Meatless Mondays is a campaign, I just started working for, which encourages Americans to cut meat from their diets once a week (we suggest Mondays, hence the name...) The Meatless Mondays website can be a great place to find all kinds of healthy meatless recipes. They even have a special Quick Sautes and an On the Go sections on their recipe archives, perfect for busy families. Meatless Mondays has partnerships with several medical schools, so it can also be an excellent resource for health and wellness articles and tips.
