We’ve got a flavour-packed Friday celebration going on today: crispy polenta served with an intense, tomatoey pesto and Parma ham; and the ultimate veggie burger topped with strong cheddar and a proper burger sauce.
This polenta recipe makes a delicious side dish or light meal. Simon serves the polenta squares with a fresh and zingy pesto to offset the creaminess of the polenta and the richness of the Parma ham. He adds extra texture by deep-frying to create a deliciously crunchy crust.
