I’ve been reminiscing about the foods I’d eaten while in Brasil, and decided to try a old favourite out on my Elflings. I’m not sure what took me so long to make Polenta. My Elflings went mad for it! ♥

Creamy Polenta
6 C water
2 C corn* grits
1 chopped onion*
2 tsp salt
3 Tbsp veggie butter*
* = Organic

∴ Bring water to a boil in wide skillet or stockpot. Add the salt to the water. Stir in dry corn grits and chopped onion. Stir or whisk the mixture constantly to avoid sticking. After about 10 minutes the grits will be soft. Add your veggie butter and stir through to incorporate. Serve warm as a side with savoury dishes. If you prefer to have this as a desert or breakfast, omit the onions and serve with cinnamon and/or maple syrup. Enjoy!

Just look at the veggie butter melt and get all oozy. It adds a wonderful creaminess and richness to the dish. I’m so glad my Elflings loved it as much as I do.
