A friend made this for lunch today and it was delicious. The recipe served 4.

  • 2 cups cooked black beans
  • 6 cups water
  • 1 cups cornmeal
  • ½ red bell pepper, diced small
  • ¾ teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¾ teaspoon oregano, chopped
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon fresh black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salsa
  1. Place black beans in a bowl and mash with a fork until halfway mashed. Set aside.
  2. Bring the water to a boil, then slowly add cornmeal, stirring to combine.
  3. Reduce heat to low, and cook for 10 minutes, stirring frequently and scraping the bottom of the pot to prevent sticking and burning.
  4. Add bell pepper, cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, oregano, salt, and pepper and stir well to combine. Continue to heat, stirring frequently for 8–10 more minutes.
  5. Add olive oil and stir well to combine, then add black beans, combining well.
  6. Gently press into a lightly greased loaf pan, smoothing the top with the back of a spoon. Chill until firm, at least 1 hour. Reheat, slice, and serve as is or lightly pan fried. Top with salsa.

That sounds like a meal in itself. I would not have thought of mixing the beans in; i would have made chili out of all the ingredients but the polenta and poured it over the top. Mmmm!
