Spinach Polenta

Spinach Polenta

Polenta is cornmeal,  boiled into a porridge and eaten directly or baked, fried or grilled.  I’ve made this spinach polenta last night as side dish for my dinner, fried tuna fish. So delicious… and easy. On this recipe I used frozen spinach, I  thawed first on microwave and mixed it into polenta porridge. Here I cooked the polenta with milk, you can also use broth. People in Germany love to eat this, serve with meat dish.
