- 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

- Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, until golden, 2 to 3 minutes.

- Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, bring 4 cups of water to a boil. Add 1 tablespoon salt.

- Divide the polenta among bowls and top with the chard and blue cheese.
