This meal plan centers around one of the most under-rated, economical, and delicious ingredients out there: ground corn. It comes in a variety of formats: grits, polenta, etc. It can come finely ground or coarsely ground.
You can use corn meal to coat things, but you can also cook it into a creamy base for hearty veggies or let it solidify and bake it into sticks (or a pizza).
These are an assortment of some of my favorite recipes that use polenta, or grits, or whatever you want to call them! They are all perfect for the winter since they are filling and warming.
- Spicy Kale with Creamy Grits
- Swiss Chard Polenta Pizza
- Fish Sticks and chopped Kale Salad
- Jalapeno Popper Dip
- Stuffed Corn Cakes
