Yield 2 portions
In general, this combination works really well as you get veggies, enough carbs from polenta and additional protein and fibre from seaweed.I also like it texture-wise, there is something utterly soft and satisfying about polenta and a fresh crunch from the veggies. Soft seaweed is not going to be that exciting, but next time you can also crush a few dried sprigs of seaweed and sprinkle on top of your dish.
To make 2 portions:
Boil 1/2 cup water or plant based milk (if you want it creamier).
Measure your polenta and start adding it to your boiling water (plant-based milk) very slowly so you don't get any lumps.
Cook on a very low for 5 minutes constantly stirring and adding liquid if required. It should not be dry at all.
Prepare your seaweed by soaking your seaweed salad for 10 minutes in cold water. When's done, just drain.
Chop your avocado and tomatoes (they should be of the best quality you can afford, experiment with different kinds of tomatoes).
Assemble your dish by making some sort of a small cake out of polenta on each plate. Add veggies on the side around it and top with seaweed. Sprinkle with chopped basil and dress with tamari. I use only tamari as it is quite moist, but you can add a dash of unrefined oil and a bit of apple cider vinegar if you want.
In general, this combination works really well as you get veggies, enough carbs from polenta and additional protein and fibre from seaweed.Just check if you also like it texture-wise, there is something utterly soft and satisfying about polenta and a fresh crunch from the veggies. Seaweed can be soft or crunchy depending how you like it.
