How to Use

Organic polenta can be used in so many ways from breakfast to dinner and desserts. Make a simple, yummy polenta porridge and serve traditionally with salt and butter or add cinnamon and nutmeg; coconut and berries; or nuts, seeds and dried fruit. Try it in scrumptious puddings with lemon zest or coconut milk.To prepare, simply add 1 part polenta to 4 parts boiling water and stir for about 5 minutes. Cook over a low heat for a further 20-25 minutes, stirring regularly until thick. Uncooked polenta is a delicious addition to baked goods including bread, pizza bases, muffins and cakes. Polenta is a great wheat free substitute for 'crumbing' fish, vegetables or meat.As a savoury dish, cook polenta as for porridge. Stock can be substituted for half of water to add extra flavour. Add a knob of butter, a splash of oil, or grated parmesan if desired. Once cooked, polenta can be served immediately as a substitute for rice or mash; or pour into a baking tray to grill or bake before serving golden slices.
