Cooking Notes:
I added 1 cup of cooked lean ground beef to the tomato/pepper sauce, added a point per serving but it was worth it. Also, I cheated and used two small jars of roasted red peppers instead of making them myself which saved a lot of prep time.

Polenta with Mushroom Gravy and Pear Avocado Salad

Polenta with Mushroom Gravy and Pear Avocado Salad

This is the dinner we had last night. The smaller bowl contains homemade polenta with a mushroom and onion gravy. the larger bowl contains a red leaf salad with red pears and avocado. The dressing is simply fresh lemon juice. John and I enjoyed the dinner and plan on having it again soon. The dinner was very easy to make and not time consuming at all. In addition it is healthy and filling without a lot of fat or cholesterol! (and of course it is vegan)
