1 cup polenta + 4 cups water + 350 degree oven + 40 minutes
+ shredded parmesan cheese + more liquid to make it the consistency you like (milk, cream, broth) + salt + pepper to taste.
1/2 red pepper diced + 1/2 onion diced + saute in olive oil until roasted
+ 2 diced tomatoes (seeded) + 1/2 tsp ancho chili powder for smokiness (use old bay, cajun, chili, or any seasoning you like) + 1/2 tsp cumin powder + salt + pepper + cilantro
+ 1/2 pound shrimp + cooked until no longer grey but pink.
Serve shrimp over polenta for a happy kid on a Wednesday fall evening.
Didn’t want to forget this super easy made up meal tonight. Love having a blog to store these random ideas. Thanks for enduring the fruits of my bad memory. I really like this easy way to make polenta in the oven, grits should work the same way too, right? I’ll save that experiment for another day.
Wishing you happy eating,
