Quicker Baked Potato

Try this method for speeding up the potato baking process (for a better texture than those that you microwave). Pre-heat the oven to 400. Place the potato in boiling water for 10 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes. This will cut the cooking time in half.

 

Corn & Tomato Polenta


vegetables, vegetarian, soups/stews, diabetic, crockpot

1 quart water
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup yellow cornmeal
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1 teaspoon dried leaf oregano
1/2 cup whole-kernel corn; * drained
1/2 teaspoon hot pepper flakes; crushed
1 pepper to taste

In a heavy, 3-quart saucepan, bring water and salt to a boil. Slowly pour cornmeal into saucepan so that water does not stop boiling, stirring to keep smooth. Reduce heat and simmer 20 to 25 minutes, stirring often until mixture is stiff. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, heat tomato sauce, oregano, corn, hot pepper flakes and pepper. When cornmeal is stiff, turn half into a serving dish and top with half the sauce. Layer remaining cornmeal and sauce and let rest to 5 to 10 minutes. Cut in squares and serve.
