Polenta is pretty much a staple in most Italian homes- even more so in Gluten Intolerant Italian homes.
I love Polenta. There are so many things you can do with it! I always keep 2 kinds of cornmeal in my house for polenta. Fine and coarse grain.
Does it matter what type you use depending on what you are doing? Not really… I tend to use the fine grain if I’m looking for a more of a creamy consistency and the coarse if I’m looking for it to set up to be sliced and fried but either kind will work no matter what you are making.
In my last post I said how I was making the Coconut Dream Bars for a get together I was going too, well these Polenta cakes will also be joining the party.
I love to cook, but I was finding it difficult to find recipes that were both Gluten and Casein free that my kids would actually eat. While searching the web and the app store on my phone hoping to find something to point me in the right direction I stumbled onto the Whole Foods Recipes app! I fell in love. It let me search according to our dietary restrictions, pull recipes that I liked and even compiled a grocery list for me.
We tried the first recipe tonight and it was a BIG hit!
