Kale & Collard Green Polenta Cutlets


More meat-resembling food from us!

Just shaping things into cutlets gives them a different vibe.  They transform any veggie, bean or grain into a main dish, worthy of adding additional vegetable sides to them, just like most of America does.  Except generally the main dish is a burger and the “vegetable” is fries or onion rings.  These cutlets go great with any tomato sauce or past-get creative!

I got the idea for these from JL Goes Vegan..someone I’ve connected with on Facebook and Twitter 🙂

2 cups chopped kale

1 cup chopped collard greens

3 cups vegetable broth

2 cups coconut milk, divided

1 cup cornmeal

1 cup onion, chopped

1/2-1 cup breadrcumbs

3 cloves garlic, minced

2 tbsp olive oil

3/4 tsp sea salt

1/4 tsp black pepper

  • In a saucepan, cook onions and oil over medium heat for 5 minutes
  • Add kale and collard greens and stir continuously for 10 minutes
  • Add milk, vegetable broth, salt and pepper, whisk together, and bring to a boil
  • Reduce to low heat, and add cornmeal, 1/2 cup at time and whisk continuously so there are no lumps
  • Stir for about 15 minutes until thick and creamy
  • Transfer polenta mix to a greased 13  9 baking pan and refrigerate for 30 minutes
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • After 30 minutes, cut polenta into triangles
  • Dredge through coconut milk, then dip into breadcrumbs
  • Place on greased baking and cook at 400 degrees for 10 minutes
  • Flip over and bake for another 10 minutes until golden brown on both sides
