Herb Polenta

Herb Polenta

Here is my favourite polenta recipe, so simple and tasty.  Can be served warm or cold and is great if you crisp it up.  Try topping it with tuna tartar, smoked salmon with cream fraiche, wild sauteed mushrooms, seared duck breast etc….. a great change from the classic potato, rice or pasta side dish.

3 cups milk
¼ cup julienned basil (can add goats cheese as well or Parmesan)
½ tsp minced garlic
1 tsp salt and pepper mixed
1 ½ cups cornmeal

Bring first 4 ingredients to a boil, slowly incorporate the cornmeal stirring with a whisk constantly.  Cook a further 5 mins.  Pour onto a oil cookie sheet.  Cool cut into desired shape.
