    Beautiful pictures and beautiful idea. Have only a few of the ingredients with me on this island in Maine, so will make it when we get home. Thanks for the inspiration, and I will be checking out Maria;’s book.

    I am the most fond of grits/polenta in my family, though I make them anyway! I also I play with quinoa and millet. Particularly have been on a quinoa salad run.

    Yum.

    I love polenta and corn anything. We had this corn-based pita-ish bread with Indian food last night that was fantastic. I HATE when I go to a grocery store and can’t find an ingredients. WF changes stock so often things are often not there when you look.

    I made it, and everything would have been great if it hadn’t been for the fact that I had to use canned artichoke hearts. No frozen in any of our local supermarkets! Unfortunately I had no luck in my choice between two different brands – I chose one from Peru, and it was just awful, fibrous and sour.
    So, if you can’t get frozen artichoke hearts, use only very good quality canned ones, otherwise they spoil the whole dish.

      Sorry to hear you had a bad batch of artichoke hearts! I used the Whole Foods 365 brand, rinsed and drained and they tasted very good. Thanks for sharing!

    Looks amazing! Not a fan of goat cheese, but maybe some feta. I love the idea of polenta crust. Our local grocery no longer carries frozen artichoke hearts either… bet they have every flavor of hamburger helper though!

    I think if I was to pick a favorite grain recipe book, well I would actually pick the vegan book, The Kind Diet by Alicia Silverstone. It uses a lot of grains in the recipes, YUM! Whenever I can’t find an item at a store, I tend to just change the recipe, easier, LOL!
    This recipe…HOLY CATS…Looks sooooooo good!!! I am polenta lover, artichoke lover, AND rosemary lover, HAPPY DANCE!!!!!!
    Hugs, Terra

    Lovely alternative to a pie crust and I can see many ways to create health-supportive fillings for this foundation recipe. Quick note: for polenta, instead of the traditional method (soul-fulfilling stirring which I love), you can also do that first polenta prep method in the oven or in the microwave (for those who wish). This allows you to prep the filling while polenta is cooking, instead of stirring the polenta. Have also found that m/w or oven cooked polenta makes easy clean up for the pot… nice recipe!!

    Ha! Isn’t it always like that, when we need something for a recipe is when they don’t have it in stock! Just so you know they’ve got frozen artichoke hearts at Trader’s too. I’m usually the pain in the butt person who says no and asks if they have any in the back or when they are planning to get more in stock, lol.
