We like to have different startch options for dinner. Once in a while, I will make this instead of pasta or rice for a change of pace. The kids seem to like it as well. I have another recipe for polenta similar to this recipe on this blog as well. This recipe has been changed to have lower fat and be more inline with a weight watchers side dish.
1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
2 cups water
1 Tbsp regular butter
2 Tbsp low-fat cream cheese
In a saucepan, bring water and a pinch of salt to a boil. Once to a boil, vigorously whisk in cornmeal. Add butter and whisk. Turn heat to low and simmer for about 15 minutes. Add in cream cheese and whisk well.
Turn off heat. Stir again before serving. Serves 4 people for 4 points each serving.
