Sweet Polenta Recipe - Strawberry & Nut

Published 14 October, 2006

You've got to like strawberries to like this polenta recipe - we used frozen strawberries and the juice really spread through the polenta making it sweet and tasty. Here's how to make the recipe...

250g polenta
500g (frozen) strawberries - you can probably just as easily use fresh, although it will make quite a different dish
Teaspoon vanilla essence (if you're feeling flash you can use a real vanilla pod)
50g ground almonds (we chopped our own in the blender to give a coarser texture)
A little sweetness if you like. We used a tablespoon of a low-GL agave syrup, but sugar will do :-)

Make the polenta as the recipe on the packet instructs. This is usually to boil 1 litre (2 pints) of water and gently pour in the polenta while stirring to avoid lumps. If you're using frozen strawberries take the juice into account when working out your fluid amounts. Boil gently until it comes away from the side of the pan.

Stir in the strawberries, vanilla and almonds. Spread into a greased shallow baking tray and let cool for half an hour.

You can serve the polenta with yoghurt, ice cream or whatever you want. The only problem with this polenta recipe is that once you start eating it you might not be able to stop.
