    Cook Polenta Bring 5 cups of water to a boil in a medium-sized sauce pan. Stir in the polenta and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and cook, stirring often, until the polenta becomes soft and smooth, about 25 minutes. The longer it cooks, the thicker it will become.

    Cook Eggs About 5 minutes before the polenta is finished, cook the eggs to your liking in a skillet coated with non-stick cooking spray.

  • 3

    Add Oil & Cheese Once the polenta is soft, stir in the extra virgin olive oil and cheddar cheese until melted. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

    Assemble Bowls Assemble the breakfast bowls by dividing the polenta into four bowls. Top each bowl with ¼ cup vegetarian refried beans, 1 egg, and 2 Tbsp salsa. Garnish with cilantro, if desired.
