Two weeks ago, I went to dinner with my friend Kim (my comrade in the Martha Stewart adventures) and we both loved the sweet potato polenta side dish. From then on, I was determined to try making some myself. While I was at the store, I saw a ‘tube’ of prepared polenta and came home all excited to give it a try.
Yes, I have some corn meal so I could try to make it myself but one step at a time. My plan was to make sweet potato puree however, I found myself devoid of any so grabbed some squash puree from the freezer. You can find it boxed and labelled as either ‘Winter Squash’ or Butternut Squash’ in the freezer section.
This was quite easy to make and I look forward to trying to make it all from scratch as well as adding different spices and combinations. My husband thought it needed more flavor so I added the paprika and cheese. I was shocked that my picky son was so eager to eat some and yes, it is all gone.
