Tantalize your taste buds with paprika-infused chicken paired with comforting and creamy polenta. Polenta also helps protect your vision: it is rich in carotenoids, plant pigments that help with healthy cell growth. When converted to vitamin A, carotenoids can also help support proper eye health and night vision. One study noted that carotenoids found in milled yellow corn products such as polenta are “highly bioaccessible,” meaning they are as easily digested (to a similar or higher extent) as some more well-known carotenoid sources, such as carrots.

Vietnamese cuisine treasures the balance between textures and flavors. In this brilliant dish, we’ve mixed crunchy vegetables with soft noodles and juicy pork tenderloin, and blended sharp ginger with pungent garlic for pleasing contrast.
