Day 105: Black Beans, Spinach, Tomatoes & Onions over Polenta

This was a dinner from the cupboard. We had a roll of packaged polenta on hand, as well as some canned black beans and canned tomatoes. We almost always have onions on hand and usually fresh baby spinach - so I made all that into a quick supper.
Sauteed the onions with some garlic in a little oil (isn't that how every supper recipe begins?).Added the tomatoes and spinach - cooked down the spinach, then added the black beans and a little chili powder.
I sliced the polenta and browned it in a littl olive oil. Then placed it on a platter and topped it with some grated cheddar cheese (about 1 cup) - you could also use pepper jack, or muenster.
Then topped the polenta and cheese with the bean and vegetable mixture

We had this with a salad of Romaine, red onions, red grapes, and pecans.
