Polenta Triangles

It’s hard to find a light dinner when you want something a little more substantial than a salad. I recently found this recipe for Polenta Triangles from Mostly Meatless Methods. Pair these with your favorite side for a flavorful dinner or lunch. These are also great to use for an appetizer – you can pre-cut the polenta triangles before a party and then heat them up in minutes when your guests are ready to eat. Save time and give your guests an appetizer that they won’t forget!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup polenta or cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup amber ale (I like Fat Tire Amber Ale, but it’s not sold everywhere)
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 oz. feta cheese (crumbled)
  • 2 oz. diced pimentos

Cooking Directions: (Makes 8 polenta triangles)

  1. Combine polenta and ale in a small bowl.
  2. Mix well and set aside.
  3. Pour vegetable broth into a large saucepan and bring to a boil.
  4. Add garlic to polenta/ale mixture.
  5. Mix well.
  6. Return to a boil, cover and reduce heat.
  7. Cook for about 20 minutes over low heat.
  8. Remove from heat and stir in feta cheese until it is melted.
  9. Add pimentos and stir well.
  10. Spreay an 8×8 inch square plan with non-stick spray.
  11. Spoon polenta mixture into pan and spread out evenly.
  12. Cover and place in the refrigerator for about one hour or until completely cooled and solid.
  13. Warm of griddle. (You can use George Forman grill)
  14. Cut polenta into four 4-inch squares and cut diagonally into 8 triangles.
  15. Grill triangles until golden brown, flip and heat other side.

Dobrou Chut!

  1. That looks and sounds delish! I did want to share, for anyone into broths, that Pacific makes a low-sodium broth that I absolutely am in love with for cooking. It’s like 15 calories/cup, too, so it’s a win to me over most kinds. I’m going to be trying this recipe sometime soon and can’t wait to see how it turns out with that Fat Tire!

  2. Thanks for tip with the broth! I will look for this next time I’m at the store. I’m all about soups in the fall/winter, so anything low-cal is a ncie change of pace compared to all the comfort food. I’ve been trying to find Fat Tire in NJ FOREVER. I’ve only been able to get in once so far and I’m getting a serious craving!
