Fine Polenta

4.49

There is something intriguing and mysterious about the amazingly fine, sandy-textured cornmeal as it cooks up soft and fluffy and transforms into anything from crispy, crunchy croutons, freshly grilled wedges or bruschetta, to a Mamaliga porridge, served with sour cream and a generous drizzle of a scarlet plum sauce. Fine polenta is a rich source of ferulic acid, an anti-cancer agent, and soluble fibre, which helps stall the ageing process by regulating blood sugar levels and lowering cholesterol. A good source of carotenoids, lutein and zeaxanthin, polenta may protect against cataracts and macular degeneration. This smooth, creamy and remarkably versatile comfort food adds sophistication to the plate. Its mild flavour and velvety consistency is a good medium for the incorporation of sharper flavours and coarser textures. If you're looking for a healthy pick-me-up, a little colour and cheer, polenta is a perfect antidote for a rainy day.
