Grilled Polenta Bites



Grilled Polenta Bites

This is an easy-to-make appetizer with just a few ingredients. If you don't have a grill, you can put the assembled polenta bites under the broiler.

  • 3 cups fresh basil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • ½ cup pistachios
  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • Pre-cooked (18-ounce) polenta log
  • Grilled tomatoes
  • Grated Parmesan (optional)
  1. In a food processor, combine basil, garlic, pistachios, lemon juice and oil. Process until smooth. Add salt to taste. Set aside.

  2. Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Slice polenta into ¼-inch-thick rounds. Grill on each side 3–5 minutes, until browned.

  3. Assemble each round with a dollop of pesto, a grilled tomato and sprinkle of Parmesan.
