Leftover polenta is made into a wonderful soup.
  • 1-2 T olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 carrot, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 4 small and 1 large zucchini/summer squash, chopped
  • 1/4 C daikon radish, minced
  • 1 large tomato, chopped
  • 1/4 C white wine (or 1 T white wine vinegar)
  • 1 T lemon juice
  • 2 C Tomato and Savory Polenta
  • 3-5 C vegetable stock (or as much as you’d like to get it to the thickness you’d like)
  • pinch cayenne
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 t dried savory, crumbled
  1. Heat a soup pot. Add olive oil. When oil is hot, add all veggies except garlic and tomatoes. Add a pinch of salt and cook over medium heat until veggies are beginning to get tender, about 10 minutes. Stir occasionally.
  2. Add garlic and cook 2-3 minutes. Add wine and cook 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add tomato, polenta, stock, and remaining seasonings. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook for 30-60 minutes, or until all veggies are tender and soup is to your desired thickness.
  4. (Optional: If you have squash haters, you could blend the soup.)
