I'm going to be making polenta for a BBQ this weekend. I had some ideas on what ingredients to use, but wanted to double check with you folks first. I'm making this polenta dish for a bunch of vegetarians/vegans, so, unfortunately - no cheese.
I'm planning on cooking the polenta with water, and olive oil. Prior to cooking, I was going to saute/caramelize shallots, garlic, and thyme with a tiny bit of sherry wine and olive oil. When the polenta's done cooking, I was going to add in the sauteed shallots, garlic and thyme to the polenta and pour it in a container to take on the shape I want for grilling. Do you think the combination of these ingredients would be tasty? I already bought shallots, and I'd like to use them with the polenta. Any hints/help/different variations, will be greatly appreciated! I'm really open-minded, s'long as it's tasty. :)
