If you’ll recall, I am temporarily (um, since November) without an oven at home. It’s like a curse. Even though I cook and bake all day at work, I find myself craving all sorts of things at home, probably because I know I can’t make them. For example, I really miss baking muffins, scones, and quick breads. Some of my favorite combinations of flavors include lemon-blueberry, blueberry-corn, and lemon-poppy seed. This recipe for Lemon-Poppy Seed Polenta with Blueberries is my attempt to satisfy this craving. I am happy to report – it worked! This recipe turns polenta into a lovely hot breakfast porridge, much like Orange Polentina.
Regularly eating a healthy breakfast is a critical part of maintaining a healthy weight. It boosts your metabolism and fuels your mind and body. This gluten-free breakfast comes together as quickly as oatmeal. The blend of polenta, lemon, poppy seeds, blueberries, and honey is almost like eating a breakfast muffin without the added fat. (Although, if you’re feeling especially indulgent, you could top it off with a pat of butter.) Do yourself a favor and enjoy a healthy breakfast every day!
