Polenta is an alternative to potatoes, mash or pasta, and works very well with dishes that are saucy. Polenta is made of ground corn and has a mushy and porridge-like texture, and like corn; is a little sweet when cooked.
This low calorie ingredient can easily take on many different flavours such as garlic, herbs, spices- such as cumin or paprika- or liquids such as heavy cream.
I've used a mix of water and milk as my cooking liquid, but you could use only milk as well.
The polenta can be made two hours in advance, and if is becomes to stiff, cook again over low heat with a bit of milk or water.
