The polenta is known as a poor man's food and comes from northern Italy like the risotto. Common to both is that they have to be frequently stirring. When Ms Aitch and Mr El were in holiday they found the polenta with leek. In northern Italy they refine polenta ai porri with anchovies. Ms Aitch and Mr El do it without anchovies because the polenta is part of the green Easter menu 2015. If you like you can add chopped parsley and 5-6 chopped anchovies into the polenta finally.

    Das ist ja ein wunderbar einfaches Rezept! Ich esse Polenta meistens mit etwas "Tomatigem", suche aber immer neue Varianten. Eure habe ich mir gleich aufgeschrieben und werde sie nächste Woche probieren! Mit Petersilie, aber ohne Sardellen. ;)
    Liebe Grüße,

      Liebe Emilie,
      auja Polenta mit etwas "Tomatigem" ist auch fein und da freuen wir uns doch schon wieder auf die Tomatensaison. Petersilie passt in beiden Fällen sicher gut dazu. Gib Bescheid, wie es dir geschmeckt hat!
      Viele Grüße aus Ye Olde Kitchen, Eva und Philipp
