Polenta is a naturally gluten-free flour made from corn, and it's an extremely versatile ingredient for many recipes for both savoury and sweet dishes. It's commonly served soft as a base for casseroles and stews, but it can be also be grilled and tossed through salads or eaten in place of bread, cut into crunchy chips or used to make crusts for lasagnes and pies.
