Creamy Parmesan Polenta with Mushrooms and Leeks

This recipe was entered in our We ♥ Local Cornmeal recipe contest by Anna Mays.  Anna says,"Comforting, creamy Parmesan polenta is a dressed up in this recipe with sauteed wild mushrooms and porcini, simmered in a rich butter, soy and mushroom stock sauce. The umami flavor of the sauce brings out the sweetness of the corn. For polenta to lose its hard, gritty texture and turn creamy, enough water must penetrate the corn’s cell walls that the starch granules within swell and burst (or “gelatinize”). Similar to the preparation of dried beans, baking soda is added to the cooking liquid to reduce the time it takes for gelatinization to occur, thus shortening cooking time and making the polenta more creamy. Enjoy with a generous mound of mushrooms and sauce; a fun twist on a classic winter comfort food."

Pho with Shrimp

Few things are more satisfying than a big bowl of pho, served hot. This quick-to-make version takes the broth out of the realm of “weekend project” into “weeknight meal.” Set out bowls of chopped peanuts, shredded or quick-pickled daikon and Sriracha or hoisin sauce so your guests can customize their pho.

Springtime Pesto Pasta

Cheey Corn and Millet Casserole

This recipe was entered in our We ♥ Local Cornmeal recipe contest by Stuart Mays.  Stuart says,"The ultimate winter comfort food. The natural sweetness of the whole corn enhances the flavor and texture of the cornmeal. Millet, a nutritious grain often said to have a taste reminiscent of corn, gives bulk to the dish, and along with the eggs, makes it hearty and filling. The cheesy interior and garnish of melted cheese with a kick of jalapeño make the casserole warming and irresistible on a winter's night."
