      Title: Polenta (pickarski)
 Categories: Main dish, Grains, Vegetarian
      Yield: 8 Servings
 
      1 tb Olive oil; or corn oil
      1 c  Peeled, finely diced carrots
      1 c  Finely diced onions
      1 c  Finely diced celery
      1 tb Minced garlic
      2 ts Sea salt
    1/2 ts Finely ground black pepper
      1 ts Chopped basil
      4 c  -Water
    1/2 c  Drained stewed tomatoes
      2 c  Yellow corn grits; -OR-
  2 1/4 c  -Cornmeal
      1 c  Cooked, drained kidney beans
 
  Heat the oil in a large saucepan.   Saute the carrots, onions,
  celery, and garlic, along with the salt, pepper, and basil, for about
  8 minutes. Cut the stewed tomatoes into small pieces and add them to
  the vegetables, along with the 4 cups of water.  Bring to a simmer.
  Then add the corn grits and kidney beans and mix well. Cook for about
  20 minute, stirring occasionally to prevent burning.  (The polenta
  may take longer than 20 minutes to cook. Check by tasting. It should
  have a soft, gritty texture.)
  
  Lightly oil a 2-quart mold and press the polenta into it, working out
  any air pockets.  Smooth out the surface and allow it to cool to room
  temperature. Refrigerate the mold until it is cold. Then unmold the
  polenta onto a tray, garnish it, and serve it in slices.
  
  NOTE: If you are using cornmeal instead of corn grits, it is best to
  soak the cornmeal separately, in 2 cups of cold water; add the
  remaining 2 cups of water to the vegetables and then combine the two
  mixtures.
  
  VARIATION: Millet Polenta Use 2 cups of millet and 5 cups of water in
  place of the corn grits and the 4 cups of water.
