Serves: 6
Total Calories: 67


1 cup instant polenta
3 cups water
2 teaspoons kosher salt
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 pound frozen leaf spinach, defrosted and squeezed dry
1/4 pound feta cheese


In a medium sauce pan, bring 3 cups of water to a boil. Add 1 teaspoon salt and whisk in the instant polenta. Cook over low heat, whisking continually for 5 minutes until the polenta is thick. Pour the hot polenta in a 9 inch square baking dish oiled with the olive oil, cover with plastic wrap and let cool for 30 minutes.

In a large skillet, heat the olive oil and sauté the garlic over medium heat for 1 minute. Increase the heat and add the spinach, stirring until it wilts.

Heat a ribbed grill pan lightly oiled with olive oil. Cut the polenta into 9 squares and grill over moderate heat until crisp and lightly charred. Place on a platter, top each piece with feta cheese and then with the warm spinach.
