Polenta Stuffing Recipe

11.21.13 by Jackie

I developed this new stuffing recipe when I had leftover polenta croutons I had fried for making salad. The preparation is the same as for bread stuffing. I flavored the polenta stuffing with earthy ingredients such as brown mushrooms, chanterelle mushrooms, sun-dried tomatoes, red, orange and yellow bell peppers and marinated artichokes. 

This stuffing version is perfect if you have gluten-inloterant guests on Thanksgiving. And you won't be missing bread, either. Also, you could serve it tamale-style in corn husks to keep it warm.

Polenta Crouton Salad Recipe

This polenta crouton salad was my dear friend Carole's idea. Carole is the editor of PhamFatale.com, and someone recently gave her the title of "Literary Swiffer," which I completely approve of. She always comments on the meals I feature on the website. When I posted polenta fries, Carole suggested another version I hadn't considered. She used to eat at a Mexican restaurant in San Francisco that served polenta croutons in their salad and she told me she could have made a meal on the croutons alone!

To make the dish, cubes of polenta are deep-fried until crisp and tossed with mixed alfalfa sprouts, home-grown Sugar Sweet cherry tomatoes, fresh cubed mango and a bit of cheese. Thanks for the inspiration, Carole!
