Why polenta porridge? I came down to breakfast today, only to realise I'd run out of oats! But wanting a nice bowl of piping hot winter grains, I searched the cupboards for some options.

I found a box of polenta and thought about turning it into some porridge. I created the tastiest breakfast of a polenta porridge and topped it with some fibre rich stewed apple and some toasted nuts and seeds.
