This recipe came from our local grocery store (Festival Foods). I made it for the family and it was a hit. I always make enough for two dinners worth. On the first night, I serve it soft. The leftovers I chill then fry in butter. For fried polenta, you can make this recipe up to two days in advance. Just keep in the fridge until ready to fry & serve.
So simple and so delicious! The tall, crisped "chips" look striking when bunched in a tumbler, and they're terrific with cocktails. Roasting the leaves coaxes out a nutty, briny flavor that can become addictive. Recipe is from Dan Barber, celebrated chef and proprietor of Blue Hill in Manhattan and Blue Hill at Stone Barns in Pocantico Hills..
We like to eat this rice when we are having a "tropical" meal. This recipe comes from "Burt Wolf's Menu Cookbook". I usually just put all the ingredients in my rice cooker and just add a little extra water but it can be cooked on the stove as described below.
The Ligurian region of Italy is along the coast and contains some steep terrain. In addition to marvelous seafood dishes, the residents enjoy vegetables with their pasta, which while somewhat unusual, is very delicious. The combination of the pasta, with browned potato cubes and green beans in the recipe is brought together marvelously by the pesto sauce.
This is a delicious extra creamy rice, if you like a little heat then add in a pinch cayenne pepper --- I have made this using converted long grain rice instead of aborio, it turned out well but the Aborio is much better to use --- you may use fresh sauteed mushrooms in place of canned or use frozen peas instead of mushrooms --- do not add in any extra salt until the rice has finished cooking, and add in only if needed --- this recipe may be doubled :)
From Reynolds Wrap, I've been making these for years and they always turn out! You can easily change the spices to suit your tastes! I've always made them on the grill, but directions are provided for the oven as well.
This is ultimate comfort food for me! I make this with roasted chicken and veggies and use some of the juices from the chicken to add more flavor. *For some reason, the baking time has been different for me. Sometimes it takes less baking time. It may depend on how coarse the cornmeal is. Just keep watching it and make sure it stays creamy and doesn't get hard. Once you stir in the herb mixture, you can make it more creamy by adding more broth or cream or you can thicken it up by putting it back in the oven for a few minutes. It's very versatile. You can use any herbs you like to go with your meal. This one is definately a keeper in our house. From the April 2001 Bon Appetit, modified by me.
