    Chargrilled vegetable & lentil stew with cheesy polenta

    • Gluten Free
    • Preparation time: 5 minutes
    • Cooking time: 25 minutes
    • Total time: 30 minutes

    Serves: 2


    300g Waitrose Frozen Chargrilled Vegetable Medley
    230g can essential Waitrose Plum Tomatoes
    60g green lentils, rinsed
    300ml Cooks’ Ingredients Vegetable Stock
    1 tsp dried oregano
    150g polenta
    60g essential Waitrose Parmigiano Reggiano, grated
    1½ tbsp balsamic glaze


    1. Put the chargrilled vegetables, tomatoes, lentils, stock and oregano in a saucepan, and bring to a gentle simmer. Cover and cook gently for about 25 minutes until the mixture is thick and pulpy, stirring frequently. Add a dash of water if the mixture dries out.

    2. Meanwhile, bring 700ml water to the boil in a saucepan with ½ tsp salt and sprinkle in the polenta, whisking well to prevent the mixture turning lumpy. Reduce the heat to its lowest setting and continue to cook, stirring with a wooden spoon for 8 minutes. Stir in all but 2 tbsp of the Parmigiano Reggiano and some ground black pepper.

    3. Add the balsamic glaze to the vegetables. Spoon the polenta onto plates, pile the vegetables on top and serve sprinkled with the reserved cheese.
