Blueberry polenta yum!

I had a big bag of cornmeal in the pantry and wondering what to do with it...so I searched for some recipes online and stumbled across this little gem on Cooking Light.
 It's an oldie but a goodie!

Polenta Pudding with Blueberry Topping:

  • 1 cup frozen blueberries (or fresh too)
  • 1/2 cup sugar, divided
  • 2 cups 2% reduced-fat milk
  • 6 tablespoons yellow cornmeal
  • 3/4 teaspoon lemon rind
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • ____________________________________________________________________________ 

  • Combine the blueberries and 1/4 cup sugar in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Cover with wax paper(I used a paper towel); microwave at HIGH 3 minutes or until thoroughly heated and sugar dissolves, stirring after 1 1/2 minutes.
  • Combine 1/4 cup sugar, milk, cornmeal, and lemon rind in a 2-quart glass measure; stir with a whisk. Microwave at HIGH 7 minutes or until thick and bubbly, stirring every 2 minutes. Stir in vanilla and salt. Serve with blueberry topping.
It rocked...so easy...and I cannot wait till the cooler weather hits- as this warm little treat will be on the menu often! 
 This is my little one asking for more....
and this is the done bowl! sweet!!!
