Slow Cooker Chuckwagon Ragout with Lightened Up Polenta

3

This figure friendly ragout is similar to a rich beef stew and it is served over a bowl of creamy cauliflower polenta. Riced cauliflower cooked with polenta, grits or cornmeal turns this dish into comfort food and lightens the dish. This dish is perfect for a busy weeknight, chilly evening or for a quick dinner before your little goblins head out for trick or treating.
