Waffled Polenta

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Heat your waffle iron (I used a Belgian waffle iron. You may want to cut your polenta thinner if you are using a regular one)
  2. Coat the heated iron with a thin layer of cooking spray.
  3. Place slices of polenta on iron.
  4. Using oven mittens (The slices are thick so you will have to use a little force, use oven mittens so you won’t burn yourself!), press iron down until it closes all the way.
  5. Let the polenta cook about 2 minutes past the point of the waffle iron indicator.
  6. Remove from iron with a spatula and fork.
  7. Place, on a pan, in a warm oven while you cook the other polenta rounds and the topping.
  8. While the polenta cooks coat a medium sauté pan with cooking spray.
  9. Sauté zucchini and tomatoes over medium high heat until they just barely starts to brown (you want to retain the shape of the tomatoes and the crunch of the zucchini).
  10. Season with Kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper.
  11. Place two polenta waffles on each plate, top with tomatoes and zucchini, and garnish with Parmesan. EAT!!!
