Orange Polentina

January/February 2010

Your rating: None Average: 4 (39 votes)

Italians enjoy cornmeal or polenta in countless preparations. Polentina is a creamier, porridge-like version, often served for breakfast. An orange-infused dollop of tangy mascarpone cheese and yogurt is a rich, delicious topping. But feel free to skip the mascarpone and double the yogurt to save calories. To keep it quick, we use instant polenta or regular fine cornmeal. If you have time, the recipe will work with stone-ground cornmeal. It will take longer to cook, 15 to 20 minutes, but will reward you with rich texture.

"I made it with low fat cream cheese, and it still turned out very good. Have also used madarins and grapefruits, and always add pecans. "

Delicious! Easy to make. Reheated left overs for breakfast the next day and they were still creamy. The yogurt topping makes it extra special.


This is a nice change of pace from oatmeal - the flavor was great. I used orange-infused honey to ramp up the flavor a little and added a smidge of vanilla extract. Yum! I made a batch on the weekend and reheated the leftovers for breakfast. It will thin out if rewarmed in the microwave.
