Creamy polenta made with honey, coconut, and walnuts makes for a very satisfying meal

Ingredients


1/3 cup Polenta, dry
1/2 cup Almond milk, unsweetened (or other non-dairy milk)
3/4 cup Water
2 tsp Coconut oil
1 pinch Sea salt
2 tsp Honey
2 tbsp Coconut, shredded, unsweetened
2 tbsp Walnuts
1/4 cup slices Strawberries (optional, can use more or less)

Instructions


  1. In a small saucepan, combine polenta, milk, water, coconut oil, and salt.
    1. If you like it creamier, substitute more milk for the water.
    2. If you like it thicker, reduce the water to ½ cup.
  2.  Bring to a boil, then turn down and let simmer on low, stirring often to avoid clumps and preventing it from sticking to the bottom. It should take about 10 minutes.
  3. Transfer to a bowl and add honey, coconut, and chopped walnuts or fruit.

    Enjoy!

Notes:
