Slow cooker pork stew with polenta is the perfect, hearty dish for a cold winter day. Serve it with a nice loaf of crusty bread or garlic toasted sourdough.

Health Benefits of Polenta and Polenta Recipes

Polenta is a healthy alternative to rice, pasta, and potatoes. It is a great grain for those who are gluten intolerant or have celiac disease.

Polenta is made from cornmeal (ground dried corn) and water. The ingredients are cooked together until the mixture becomes thick like porridge, then it’s allowed to cool and solidify into a loaf.

You can enjoy polenta in many ways: in soups, as a side dish with beans or meat sauce, or even as an ingredient in cakes and other desserts!
