  • 1
    For polenta, in 4-quart saucepan, heat stock, cream and 1/2 teaspoon salt just to boiling over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium; very slowly beat in cornmeal with whisk. Continue to beat constantly 2 to 3 minutes or until mixture thickens. Reduce heat to low; cover and cook 20 minutes, stirring once after 10 minutes.

    Meanwhile, in 12-inch skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add onions and 1/4 teaspoon salt; cook 4 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until onions brown on edges and soften. Add bell pepper; cook and stir 2 to 3 minutes or until pepper softens and begins to brown on edges. Add mushrooms; cook and stir 4 to 5 minutes or until mushrooms release juices, juices absorb and mushrooms brown. Stir in kale; cook and stir 1 to 2 minutes or until wilted. Add wine; stir constantly, scraping up browned bits, 1 to 2 minutes or until liquid is almost completely absorbed.
  • 3
    Divide polenta among 4 plates. Top each plate with about 1 cup vegetable mixture; sprinkle with cheese.

Expert Tips

  • Like a little more texture in your polenta? Opt for stone-ground cornmeal. You'll need to cook covered on low for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.
  • If you can't find lacinato kale, curly green kale or spinach will work just fine.
