Ingredients for 4 people
250g Casale1485 of ready Polenta, 0,75 litre of hot water, extra virgin olive oil, 3 cloves of garlic, 50g of black truffles (or 150g of truffle sauce), fine sea salt, fresh ground pepper.
In a saucepan prepare a “soffritto” that is: put 5 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil with the cloves of garlic finely minced and warm it up for 2 minutes, then add the black truffles cut into thin slices.
In the meantime, in another saucepan, put 0,75 litre of water and a tablespoon of fine sea salt, warm it up over low heat for 10 minutes, then add the polenta flour; let it cook over low heat for 3 minutes, stirring continuously.
Finally, pour the polenta on a large chopping board, smooth it and garnish with the truffle slices and the “soffritto”.
Dust the polenta with some fresh ground pepper to taste.
Put the chopping board at the centre of the table and now share with your friends or family.
This is the traditional way to serve the polenta in Italy.
If you prefer, you can pour the polenta in every single dish, garnish with the truffle slices and serve.
If you do not have the black truffles, you can use a truffle sauce, to garnish every polenta dish.
