Creamy Polenta with Pear
This Creamy Polenta with Pear Bowl is inspired by my Aunt Patrizia who has cooked it for my girls when they were little and we’ve cooked it ever since!
I love porridge in the morning but I do need a change from time to time so this is great. I buy organic quick cook polenta which only takes a few minutes and I love the creaminess of this. Top with fruit, nuts or dried fruits…it’s so yummy!

Check the directions on your particular box of polenta, as the coarseness, ratios and cooking times may vary.
