How to get spinach into a one year old following the example of her older brothers and becoming a horrible pickypoo who only likes applesauce and crackers:
This makes a small batch.
1/2 c. yellow corn meal
1 1/2 c. water, divided
2 small cloves garlic, minced or pressed
salt and pepper
1/2 c. chopped spinach
1/8 c. grated parmesan
handful of pine nuts
In a small bowl, mix the corn meal with 1/2 c. water. Meanwhile, bring 1 c. water to boil with salt and garlic in a small saucepan.
Stir corn meal mixture into boiling water with wire whisk. Bring back to boil and reduce heat. Simmer, stirring, for 5 minutes. Stir in spinach and parmesan. Serve with pine nuts sprinkled on top.
We ate this with the red wine pot roast last night. Z approved heartily. I might have to make polenta again for her this weekend. It is so nice to have an appreciative audience.
