Vegan Polenta Pie

Packed with vegetables, this vegan polenta pie also has protein from black beans and vegan cheddar shreds! 

Do you avoid Polenta because of its lack of flavor? I did.

Polenta was at the bottom of my food list for most of my life. It just didn't have flavors that enticed me and adding sauce and veggies on top of a bland base didn't appeal. Since we fill everything meal at our house with vegetables, we decided to do the same with our polenta.

We packed it full of onions, garlic,...
