Beetroot and Kidney Beans with Polenta (MICROWAVE)



  1. Mix the vinegar and tomato puree in a large-ish bowl, mix in a bit of water if you think it's a bit thick. This is the dressing for the beetroot.
  2. Put the beetroot in the bowl, and chop it up with a knife and fork. Give it a stir so that it is covered with the dressing.
  3. Stir in the olives and kidney beans so that everything is well covered with the dressing.
  4. Put the polenta and water in a jug that will hold 500ml (it will bubble up).
  5. Cover the jug with a small plate and cook in the microwave on medium high power for 2 minutes.
  6. Stir the polenta and repeat step 5 above.
  7. Pour the polenta onto a plate and serve with the beetroot mix.
