I'll just say it: I am trying to eat less cheese. It is horrifying to me gastronomically, but appeals to my wish to eat more healthily. My family loves polenta, but how to make it taste as creamy and flavourful without the cheese I have come to rely on. The sun-dried tomatoes and rosemary make the polenta really tasty, but the basil-infused olive oil was the real secret to success. This is my first attempt. It worked really well for the adults, but the smaller kids turned up their noses.
A great way to use up some of the extra kale you might have in your garden! You can use other similar greens in this recipe - spinach, chard and rocket all work beautifully. A mixture is also quite good.
