Ok so it’s summer and the grilling continues! However, if you don’t have a grill or it’s too cold outside, you can use a stove top grill! This is actually what I used for this recipe to show you just how good your food can turn out and also get those grill marks I’m such a sucker for!
Polenta is one of the simplest yet most delicious food in my opinion. It’s like a sponge, in that it takes on the flavor or whatever you choose to season and cook it with! Do not be intimidated by polenta, it’s simply cornmeal. You can dress it up so many ways. In this case, I used olive oil, rosemary, garlic powder, salt, pepper, dried basil and CHERRY BALSAMIC GLAZE!
FUN FACT: When polenta was first introduced, it was thought of as the first “bread” because of its solid consistency once it cooled. This was before any technology of grinding grains into flour and therefore the bread we know today was not created yet.
