Sometimes you’re in the mood for something that’s lighter than pasta and creamier than rice. Polenta (coarsely ground cornmeal) is the Goldilocks of grains for that craving. Cooking in the microwave makes this difficult-on-the-stove dish easily achievable on a weeknight. Simmered simply in water and milk, it’s the perfect canvas for hearty bolognese, braised stew, or tomato sauce.
All of Anyday’s recipes are tested (and retested!) in many different microwaves and home kitchens to make sure they work — and work well.
