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!

3 cups water
1 cup yellow polenta
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup almond milk
1/2 ripe pear, sliced thin

Check the directions on your particular box of polenta, as the coarseness, ratios and cooking times may vary.
Bring water to a boil.
Add salt and turn burner down to a simmer.
Add dried polenta in a stream, whisking constantly so no lumps form.
Polenta will begin to thicken immediately.

Top polenta with pear slices, nuts, cranberries, honey and as much milk as you like.
