Servings 2


  • 5 oz asparagus
  • 8 oz canned white beans
  • 1/4 cup bbq sauce
  • 3/4 cup dry polenta
  • 1/4 cup non-dairy milk of choice unsweetened


  • Bring 1 1/4 cups water to a boil. Reduce to low. Slowly whisk in 3/4 cup polenta. Keep stirring to break down clumps. Add milk (about 1/4-cup) to thin out. Add salt to taste.
  • Steam asparagus separately for about 5-8 minutes.
  • In a medium bowl, toss asparagus, white beans, and barbecue sauce until coated.
  • Serve over polenta.


Tip – For crispier asparagus, bake in the preheated 425 degree oven until just tender, 12 to 15 minutes depending on thickness.
Extra Calories – Add 1 cup of steamed veggies.
