New Foods

I've never had polenta before, but since nothing lately sounds good, I've been wanting to try new things. I found this at my new favorite produce/natural foods store down the street... sundried tomato and garlic polenta.





I've never cooked polenta before so I was trying out some things and made this (sorry for the blurry pic)...


It's slices of polenta topped with chicken, black beans, various peppers, and fat free mozzerella. Overall, it wasn't too bad. Next time I think I'll cook the topping and polenta separately so that the polenta will get a little more firm.
Just trying to broaden my food horizons.....

I love polenta! It's best 'fried', I just use a tiny bit of olive oil..and make sure they are nice and crisp. It's also really easy to make..GREAT FIND!
