  3. Toss until they are lightly coated in oil, then arrange the vegetables in a single layer across the pan.

  4. Bake for 25 to 40 minutes, tossing halfway until the vegetables are tender and deeply golden on the edges.

Goat Cheese Polenta:

  1. In a medium saucepan, warm 2 teaspoons olive oil over medium heat until shimmering.

  2. Add the chopped bell pepper and ½ teaspoon salt.

  3. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the pepper is tender, about 5 minutes.

  4. Add the amount of water specified on the polenta package, increase the heat on the stove, then bring the mixture to a boil.

  5. Pour in the polenta, whisk to combine, and reduce heat to medium-low.

  6. Cook until thickened, whisking often to remove any clumps.

  7. Remove the pot from the heat, and stir in the butter, salsa verde and freshly ground black pepper, and salt to taste.

  8. Gently fold in the crumbled goat cheese, just until combined. Cover and set aside.

Toppings:

  2. Divide the grits and eggs into 4 bowls.

  3. Divide the vegetables into the bowls and finish them with a light sprinkle of green onion.
