  • 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2/3 cup regular or quick-cooking polenta
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 stalk celery, thinly sliced, plus leaves for serving
  • Pinch of red-pepper flakes
  • 1/3 cup thinly sliced jarred roasted piquillo or red bell peppers
  • 1 can (15 ounces) small white beans (such as navy), rinsed and drained


  1. Bring broth and 2 cups water to a simmer in a saucepan over medium-high heat; season with salt. Slowly add polenta, whisking constantly. Simmer, stirring frequently and reducing heat as needed, until thick and creamy, 20 to 25 minutes for regular, or about 5 minutes for quick-cooking. Remove from heat; cover.

  2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat; swirl in oil. Add garlic, celery, and pepper flakes; cook, stirring occasionally, until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Stir in roasted peppers and beans; season with salt and pepper. Cook until heated through, about 1 minute. Add 1/2 cup water and bring to a simmer; cook, mashing some of beans to create a creamy sauce, until thickened slightly, about 2 minutes. Serve over polenta, drizzled with oil and sprinkled with celery leaves.
