Grilled Polenta

I love polenta. It is naturally gluten free and goes great as a side to many different dished. Making it from scratch is not hard but I prefer to buy Ancient Harvest Quinoa Polenta. All the work is already done for you and its filled with protein and fiber.

Ingredients:

1 Package of any Ancient Harvest Quinoa

1-2 Tbs Olive Oil

1 tsp Salt

1 tsp Pepper

Cheese Optional* Any kind that melts well

Start by cutting the polenta into round about 1 inch thick. Place them on a plate in the fridge for at least an hour. This will insure that they will not fall apart. When your ready to grill, brush each piece will olive oil on both sides and season will salt and pepper. Place over BBQ on medium heat. They need about 2 minutes on each side. If using cheese, add after turning. Serve as a great grill side or as an alternative vegetarian protein similar to a veggie burger.
