Category: Vegetables

 Ingredients List

  • 2 tb Olive oil
  • 1/2 sm Red onion; minced
  • 1 Clove garlic; minced
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 3 1/2 c Non-fat chicken stock
  • 1 c Instant polenta
  • 1 tb Parmesan cheese
  • Fresh ground black pepper


In large, deep saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; add onion and saute
5-7 min until softened. Add garlic and saute 1 min, being sure not to let
it brown. Add salt and stock and bring to a rolling boil. Add instant
polenta in thin stream and cook, stirring for 5-10 min, until very smooth
and stiff. Stir in the cheese and quickly pour the polenta into 8-inch
non-stick square pan that has been rinsed out with cold water. Smooth the
top with a spatula. When the polenta has cooled, cover it and allow to rest
for at least 2 hrs.

Cut the polenta in half and cut each half into thirds. Slice each piece
horizontally to make 12 squares about 1/2 inch thick.

Prepare barbecue for grilling. Brush the polenta with a little olive oil
and sprinkle with black pepper. Grill 6-7 min on each side until brown and
crispy. Place slices on individual plates and garnish with warm red onion
