Black Beans with Polenta Rounds

Servings: 10 pieces

  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 (18 oz.) original polenta roll, or quinoa
  • 1 (15 oz.) can Glory Foods Simply Seasoned Black Beans
  • 1-1/2 tsp. balsamic vinegar (best quality)
  • 1/2 cup dairy sour cream
  • 1/2 ripe avocado, smashed
  • 1-2 dashes Glory Foods Hot Sauce
  • 1/3 cup freshly shredded Parmesan cheese
  • freshly chopped flat-leaf parsley or cilantro


  1. Slice polenta roll into 10 circles (about 3/4 inch thick), discarding the ends. Heat oil in a skillet and (in 2 batches) fry polenta on both sides until golden brown.
  2. Warm the Glory Foods Simply Seasoned Black Beans in a small sauce pan and stir in vinegar. In a small bowl, stir together the sour cream, avocado and Glory Foods Hot Sauce.
  3. To serve, plate polenta rounds and spoon with beans. Drop a spoonful of sour cream-avocado mixture onto each round. Scatter cheese over sour cream mixture and sprinkle with parsley.
