Chipotle-Roasted Veggie Polenta Bowl with Truffled Eggs #FreshTastyValentines #sponsor #giveaway

This is a fantastic, hearty breakfast for your Valentine. And while I make some version of this at least once a month, this was the first time I used something other than olive oil to roast my veggies...and the first time I shaved black truffles on the top of the eggs.

Thanks to Fresh Tasty Valentines sponsor T.Lish Dressings, my veggies had a hint of chipotle. I used some broccolini from Mann Packingstirred some Gourmet Garden Herbs & Spices into the polenta, and topped it all with an egg and thin shavings of black truffle. Delectable and perfectly decadent for a special breakfast or brunch entree!


Roasted Veggies

  • delicata squash, halved, deseeded, and sliced
  • butternut squash, peeled and cubed
  • sweet potatoes, cubed
  • fennel, trimmed and sliced
  • broccolini from Mann Packing
  • Chipotle Vinaigrette & Marinade from T.Lish Dressings


  • 2 C polenta
  • 3 C warm chicken stock
  • 3 C warm water
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 2 T lightly dried parsley from Gourmet Garden
  • 2 T lightly dried basil from Gourmet Garden
  • 1/2 C shredded parmesan cheese


  • eggs, boiled to your preference
  • black truffles
  • fresh chopped parsley
  • freshly ground salt
  • freshly ground pepper


Roasted Veggies
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Place the delicata squash, butternut squash, sweet potatoes, and fennel in a large mixing bowl.

Pour in enough Chipotle Vinaigrette & Marinade from T.Lish Dressings to coat everything. Toss and turn out onto a parchment lined sheet in a single layer.

Slice the broccolini into 2" length and toss to coat with Chipotle Vinaigrette & Marinade. Turn the broccolini onto a parchment-lined sheet in a single layer.

Roast for 30 to 35 minutes, until the broccoloini is fork tender and the squash is nicely caramelized. Set aside until you're ready to plate.

Butter a baking dish and preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Mix all of the ingredients - except the herbs and cheese - together in a large mixing bowl. Then spoon everything into the baking dish. Bake for an hour, but stir it every twenty minutes. When it's finished, add herbs and cheese. Stir that together until the cheese is completely incorporated.

To Serve
Spoon the roasted veggies onto a plate. Scoop the polenta on top and lay a few more veggies on top. Peel and halve your eggs. Place them on top of the polenta. Shave black truffle slices on top of the egg and sprinkle with fresh parsley. Serve immediately. Che squisito!

Caulibits Crni Rižoto (Croatian Black "Risotto") #Whole30

Last week, I participated in the Wine Pairing Weekend event 'New Year, New Wine." I paired Crni Rižoto with Dingac Vinarija’s Pelješac...and you can read my post: here . I was pouring a Croatian wine and decided to make a traditional Croatian dish. Every seafood restaurant in Croatia has a  Crni Rižoto  (black risotto) on its menu.  Crni Rižoto  is risotto dyed black with squid ink; I used cuttlefish ink for the same effect. However, since arborio rice is not Whole30 compliant, I made a version for myself that used caulibits instead of rice. Ingredients 1 C fish stock (or a combination of fish stock and vegetable stock) 1 T olive oil 1 medium shallots, peeled and minced 1 cloves garlic, crushed and minced 1/4 lb shrimp 1/4 lb squid tubes, cleaned and sliced into rings 1/4 lb scallops 1/4 lb clams, scrubbed 1/4 lb mussels, scrubbed 4 C caulibits, or chopped cauliflower 1 T fresh parsley, minced juice and zest from 1 organic lemon 1 t cuttlefish ink

This month the French Winophiles group is looking at affordable wines from Burgundy.  Host Cindy of Grape Experiences wrote: "Burgundy, or Bourgogne, is known for its wines of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir... as well as Aligote, Gamay, Sauvignon, César, Pinot Beurot, Sacy, Melon in lesser quantities. Many of the well-known wines are quite expensive, but there are plenty of values to be found." Read her invitation here. And there won't be a Twitter chat for this event, so you will have to dive into the articles themselves to read about our pairings and findings. Here's the line-up...
