I saw this griddled polenta with goats cheese & roasted tomatoes on a Gordon Ramsay show the other week. As soon as I saw it, my mouth was salivating and I knew straight away I just had to try it.
This is such a great dish to have for brunch if you’re entertaining people or even just any old Sunday brunch with the family. I love simple recipes and this one totally fits in with the Dad’s Home Kitchen mantra of simple, easy and fun. I love the texture and flavours of the polenta, goat cheese and roasted tomatoes coming together with the fresh basil. It really does put a spring in your step.
A good tip with the polenta is that I use vegetable stock instead of water when making it. It just takes your polenta to another level of flavour. You can use beef or chicken stock too if you wish. You can also plan ahead and make the polenta in advance and then just finish it off in the griddle pan as your tomatoes roast in the oven.
Lastly make sure you use a good salty goat’s curd or cheese as it will give the dish a delicious bite that goes amazingly with the savoury flavours from the polenta and roasted tomatoes. If you’re not a fan of either or you can’t find any, cream cheese or crème fraîche will do the job as well. Enjoy
