Gluten free polenta ‘burger’ recipe

polenta burgers

Tonight’s dinner didn’t start with a recipe. It started with a thought. I knew what flavours I wanted to eat, but I didn’t really know what it was exactly. This is how a lot of my meals start. I’m an emotional eater and also an emotional cook. Have any of you seen Like Water for Chocolate? I love the idea that emotion and love that goes into a meal is felt by the eater. Food is such a sensory journey, and it makes me really sad when I see people eating bad processed food. It makes me even more sad to see kids eating it. Good food is ridiculously simple, and many of our family favourites I would never blog about, because it is literally make a salad and barbeque some meat. Serve. Just as easy as take the packet out of the freezer and cook for 20 mins on one side. Turn piece of factory food over and cook for a further 20 mins. Serve hot, because who knows what will happen once it goes cold!
