Polenta

Polenta is a dish cooked from boiled cornmeal. There are many ways to cook and serve Polenta. You can eat it fried, baked, or smooth out of the pot like porridge or mashed potatoes. Add in fresh herbs for more dimension of flavor or add in some cream for a creamy thickness. The bright yellow color is wonderfully eye catching and can brighten up a plain plate of food. Popular in Italy, polenta is becoming the new IT food in other parts of the world. The following recipes will help you decide how you would like to cook and eat some delicious polenta.

Cilantro Polenta & Bean Salsa

When I was watching one of the many season of Top Chef I started getting curious about Polenta. It seemed that every chef on the show would cook with it in one challenge or another. I just assumed I would never find Polenta here in Mexico but sure enough there it was at the grocery store. It is exciting to cook with a new ingredient, something you may never have even eaten before. I felt like I was on a Top Chef quickfire challenge and I had to think of something fast! This Polenta Recipe came to mind…but not as fast as those chefs think up easy recipes.

Delicious Rating: If you are not using quick cooking polenta make sure you continue to whisk and whisk hard! If you are not a cilantro fan than this recipe may not be for you. It is geared up with cilantro and some spiciness from the peppers in the salsa. I have to say that it was good and different. I really didn’t know what to expect. My DH enjoyed it and asked for me to make it again one day. I will for him but not for myself. It just didn’t do anything for my palate. Let me know what you think in the comment section!
