Polenta, made from ground cornmeal, is a porridge that dates to ancient times and is known in England and the U.S. as cornmeal mush.

You can purchase precooked, ready-to-heat-and eat “solid polenta” in sausage-like tubes, plain and in flavors such as basil, garlic and sundried tomato.

Slices of polenta can be easily turned into hors d’oeuvres, first courses and sides. They provide a firm base for just about anything. Just pan fry or heat them in the microwave.

Think of polenta as:

  • A base for poached eggs

    This organic polenta is available from

  • An hors d’oeuvre, topped with a grilled shrimp, scallop, smoked salmon or salmon caviar
  • A first course, topped with sautéed mushrooms and fresh herbs
  • A side dish topped with tomato sauce and grated cheese
  • Melt cheese on them for a snack
  • The possibilities are endless. The tubes need no refrigeration before they are opened, so you can keep them in the pantry for instant inspiration.

    Polenta is fat free and gluten free; some brands are organic and kosher.
