The best dishes are those that can be eaten for brunch, dinner or lunch. That's everything the following recipe is. While it may be made with polenta — something that's not necessarily known for its elegance or sophistication — the ingredient completely transforms in this dish. Used as a simple base, it really shows off the mushrooms, caramelized onions and fancier cheeses that top it. Plus, baby kale is slightly wilted to give it a little pop of color and even more nutrients.
Don't be put off by the somewhat time-consuming process. While the polenta is cooking, the caramelized onions can be made and after that, it all comes together in just a few short steps. It then gets topped with those delicious cheeses, but these should be left off if freezing and added just before cooking. After a quick short bake in your oven, you won't believe that polenta could ever be such a class act.
