This little number is delicious, quick and easy to whip up and can be made as a main or alongside your favourite cut of meat. Personally, I serve it as a main meal because it's too yummy to have only a small portion, but the choice is yours.

No longer grainy

Makes: 4 side servings or 2 main meals
Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 18 minutes

3 tablespoons butter
3 garlic cloves, crushed
250g baby spinach
200ml thickened cream
375ml vegetable stock
1 cup polenta
cup pecorino, finely grated
cup cheddar cheese, finely grated
Salt and pepper to taste

Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat.

Add garlic and stir until slightly fragrant.

Add spinach and cook, stirring until wilted.



Stir in cream and simmer for two minutes.


Transfer spinach mixture to a bowl.

Increase heat to high.

Add vegetable stock and 400ml cold water to saucepan and cover.

Bring to the boil.

Reduce heat to low and add polenta.


Cook, stirring constantly, for 5 to 7 minutes or until polenta is thick and no longer grainy in texture.

No longer grainy
