Creamy Polenta with Spinach and Carrots

  • Creamy Polenta with Spinach and Carrots
From the Fearless Flyer: "We love polenta as much for its versatility as we do for its sweet corn flavor. You can sauté it, you can grill it, you can prepare it a la Parmigiana… you could even make an intriguing version of eggs Benedict with it. In all of our interactions with polenta, though, we've never seen one quite like Trader Joe's Creamy Polenta with Spinach & Carrots.

Inside the bag you'll find frozen "pellets" of polenta, the traditional Italian cornmeal dish, and plenty of spinach and carrots. It's kind of like risotto with veggies. Only without the risotto. And with polenta. It's all free-flowing, so you can use as much as you like – make a bit just for yourself, or use the whole bag when you're putting together a family meal. It cooks together quickly to create a side dish that's excellent with chicken, fish or pork, and it makes a satisfying vegetarian main course, too.

A little suggestion for a memorable presentation: grill chicken or fish, then lay atop a bed of Creamy Polenta with Spinach & Carrots. It's easy as can be, and really looks "fancy." Yet it doesn't have a fancy price. We're selling each 16 ounce bag for $2.99, every day."
