My favorite ways to eat POLENTA

Since I became vegan last year, I discoverd so many new things to eat...

One of them is Polenta. I never had polenta before but since I got to know it, I eat it very often. I just love how easy it is made, and how easy it is combined with all different kinds of food. 

In this post you can see two ways of how to enjoy polenta:

A (fried) pesto-polenta (made with pesto-spices) with a green salad, homemade black-olive-paste and a vegan burger (perfect lunch for a hot Summer day, since both polenta and salad is fresh and cold - even though you can of course decide to eat the polenta hot :) )

A plain polenta with hot leek and hot apples. I love the combination of leek and apples and this its just soooo tasty to put both of it on top of some plain polenta. I jsut fry both leek and apples for a few minutes in a pan and then its already perfect. This combination is probably better in Fall or Winter, since leek is somehow a Winter-veggie... anyhow, I love to eat this in Summer too, since I like the freshness of the apples in the fried leek. In Summer I like to eat the whole thing cold, which is as good as the hot version.

Now, PLEASE let me know your favorite polenta combination so that I can try it too :) 
I am always looking for inspiration and new ideas!
Have a good day and enjoy your meal ;-)


  1. Looks delicious! I love polenta, we eat it several ways, although a favourite is slicing them in long fry-like pieces, bake or fry them in pan and add carmelized onions and blue cheese/yoghurt dipping.

  2. Hi Larissa, I was so humbled by your last comment, I most certainly don't know more than you or anyone else, it is just a fond passion :) I am semi vegan and polenta sounds like the perfect thing to incorporate into my diet, I didn't know ether were so many ways to prepare it, I really want to try it out. Thanks for your opinion on my last post...hope your week is going well.

  3. That looks so yummy and fun, maybe I would make polenta someday, and hope it comes out good:)
