easy and delicious polentaPosted: January 20, 2016
hi, sister three here! in georgia, it’s been getting SUPER cold, going down to the high 20s in the mornings. dad and i have been at trader joe’s about three times this week because we keep on getting things and something i like to get is their polenta. it’s premade so you can simply sear it off with butter or stir it up for a more grits like polenta and add your stir ins. at first, i tried breaking down the polenta and adding chicken stock, but it just gave it a flavor i really hated. then, i tried water, which worked perfectly and formed the recipe that i’m sharing below. i hope you try it and enjoy!
you will need:
salt and pepper
optional: red pepper, onions, spinach, etc. you can use anything!
1. dice up the polenta and put it into the pot along with a little bit of water. the amount of water you add will determine how liquidy your polenta will be, but you can always boil the water away.
2. stir in the parmesan cheese and salt and pepper.
3. put your polenta in a bowl and saute your vegetables, adding a little bit of salt and pepper. keep in mind how salty your polenta is with the cheese when seasoning!
4. once the vegetables are cooked to your liking, toss in your polenta again and stir until it’s all combined. top with parmesan and enjoy!
