    Directions:

    1. 1
      Bring 2 of the cups of water to the boil and slowly add the polenta and herbs , whisking all the time. This ensures the polenta won’t form lumps.
    2. 2
      Reduce the heat to a simmer, stirring frequently with a wooden spoon.
    3. 3
      When the polenta becomes too thick, add the remaining water a little at a time.
    4. 4
      Line a tray with cling film and spread the polenta about 1 inch thick using the back of a spoon. Cool overnight. Once cooled, cut into shapes brush with oil and season with salt and pepper and grill on hot grill.
    5. 5
      Heat the balsamic vinegar, garlic and sugar in a saucepan. Once the sugar has dissolved, add the asparagus and cook for 3 minute.
    6. 6
      To serve: arrange the polenta shapes on serving dishes, top with the asparagus and tomatoes, shave over the parmesan and drizzle with a little olive oil. Garnish with fresh parsley. Serve with lots of fresh crusty bread.

      Subbed in green beans for the asparagus as we're not big fans. I probably would make this again, but I would definitely double the sauce the next time (or more) as it is what really gives this dish it's flavor. Otherwise I found it rather bland (and in dire need of salt!) I made polenta hearts for Valentine's day and it looked adorable.

      I had to resort to pre-made polenta when I first tried this as time was short, but even so this is a delicious dish. Makes a very welcome change from rice or pasta as a side dish. Can't wait to try it with freshly made polenta.
