Polenta Cakes with Chevre and Pimiento; the Weekly Menu Plan — 24 Comments

  1. Great! I have a can of piquillo peppers in the pantry, waiting for inspiration — and here you are, with a recipe that looks perfect.

  2. I say, anything with goat cheese is Cindy friendly! I would love to try my hand at making my own! I have a friend who has a milking goat, and she is willing to sell the milk. Just need the time and energy to try my hand at it. I am just finishing a new book from the library called “A Pig in Provence”, by Georgeanne Brennan, and what a delightful read it has been! She has a whole chapter on goats cheese!

  3. Beautiful, easy and full of flavor – the perfect food combination. The cheese looks to be at its peak of flavor and that balsamic reduction on the cheese is incredible. Watch out, I’m drooling!

  4. Mmmm, what a good combination. The freshness of the goat cheese sounds like a great foil for the richness of the polenta. And the sweet pimiento, yummm. Another winner.

  5. Lydia, ‘Tis my mission in life to inspire you ;-))
    Cindy, I’m the same way! Make your own??? I eagerly await the details if you ever try. I’d need to find the goat…
    Deb, it was almost as happy as my mouth!
    Laurie, I love easy to assemble but with complex flavors – and the goat cheese was nicely ripe!
    Tanna, didn’t you get it? I beamed some over… Really! I did!
    ZaZa, thanks the the kind words! I love those pimientos and am always trying to think of ways to eat them.
    Michelle, thanks…I’ll beam some to you, too!

  6. Cheesy polenta, roasted red peppers, goats cheese and balsamic syrup…mmm… This sounds so good!

  7. Wow that is quite the fancy presentation! I’d definitely be happy to eat that. The balsamic vinegar reduction is the perfect addition.

  8. Thanks, Gattina…welcome back!
    Kevin, when you put it that way…yes it does!
    Coffee & Vanilla, we need pretty colors during these grey days!
    Cakespy, thanks, as I said: pretty is important…
    Ashley, thanks for the kind words 😉

  9. I JUST made gnocchi di polenta the other day ( I have the boiling burn mark to prove it). Since I’ve been on a polenta fix since taking my cooking class, I’ll have to try this. However pimentos aren’t my thing so I’ll just sub with the peppers. Just so you know. 🙂

  10. This dish is sooo yummy and I love the simplicity. I have been cooking your recipes for dinner since august. Thank you so much for all of the inspiration!
