Polenta, in my opinion, is the most underrated grain. It can be used in cooking or baking and gives dishes either an ultra-creamy feel or a little crunch. You can make it savoury (below) or sweet like in a maple corn bread muffin. If you haven’t tried it yet, may I suggest starting with these creamy cheesy polenta bowls with broccolini, mushrooms and poached eggs. It’s easy to make and a warming, comforting dish on cold nights.
