Polenta Triangles
Ingredients

Polenta Triangles

1/2 cup uncooked yellow corn grits
1 1/2 cups fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth, divided
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup (2 ounces) crumbled feta cheese
1 red bell pepper, roasted,* peeled and finely chopped

Directions
Yield: 8 servings
Serving size: 1 triangle

1 – Combine grits and 1/2 cup chicken broth in small bowl; mix well. Pour remaining 1 cup broth into large heavy saucepan; bring to a boil. Add moistened grits and garlic; mix well. Return to a boil. Reduce heat to low. Cover; cook 20 minutes. Remove from heat; add feta cheese. Stir until cheese is completely melted. Add roasted bell pepper; mix well.

2 – Spray 8-inch square baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Spoon grits mixture into prepared pan. With wet fingertips, press grits evenly into pan. Refrigerate until cold.

3 – Spray grid with nonstick cooking spray. Prepare grill for direct cooking. Turn polenta out onto cutting board; cut into 2-inch squares. Cut each square diagonally into 2 triangles.

4 – Place polenta triangles on grid. Grill over medium-high heat 1 minute or until bottoms are lightly browned. Turn triangles over; grill until browned and crisp.
