Revolutionise the lunchbox!
You all know how much I love polenta. I grew up with it, being from northern Italy, and it’s such a meal-saver! So versatile and it provides variety in the week, as a source of carbs that is different from wheat or potatoes (polenta is from corn).
I’ve decided to experiment with a recipe of my own and giving it to my harshest critics for lunch: my children. Well, you’ll be happy to know the lunchboxes came back empty! And I of course ate these little bundles of flavour too and they were all gone before I knew it. I am sure it will quickly become a new staple in their lunchbox.
Note: you may know polenta as cornmeal, and to make this recipe super quick you may want to use "express polenta" or "instant polenta", that is ready in just a few minutes, and in the US it's sold through online retailers and big stores, as well as Italian shops or delis. You can make it also with classic polenta if you can't find the express one, it will just take a lot longer to cook, and in that case follow the packet instructions for the cooking time.
