This asparagus polenta can be ready in about the time it takes to cook the polenta. It’s also perfect for the still slightly cooler spring evenings. Best of all, it’s highly adaptable for what you already might have on hand.
Polenta: your options
No matter the season, I’ll always be up for a good bowl of polenta. It’s such a creamy bed for almost any kind of vegetable. What I didn’t know, until my good friend Alanna showed me the way, is that polenta is amazing with burrata.
If you don’t want to go the polenta route, easily turn this bowl into a delicious risotto (using a recipe like this cracked spelt or this cracked farro dish). You could also speed up the meal and use leftover grains for a delightful grain bowl.
