Grilled Polenta

Herbed Polenta with Grilled Tomatoes
Serves: 6
WW Points: 5

1 1/2 cups polenta
3 cups water
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon I Can't Believe It's Not Butter
5 tablespoons fresh basil, parsley, and chives -- chopped
2 teaspoons olive oil
4 large plum tomatoes
salt and pepper

Bring water to a boil in a large pot. Reduce heat and slowly add polenta, stirring frequently to prevent lumping. Stir over medium heat for 5 minutes, until polenta begins to thicken and comes away from the sides of the pan.

Remove pan from heat and stir in butter, hebrs, and black pepper. Transfer mixture to a lightly greased pan and spread out evenly. Let sit until it is cool.

Once the polenta is set, take it out of the dish and place on a cutting board (turning the dish over on the board will help do this part cleanly!). Cut into 6 squares or circles and brush with oil.

Cut tomatoes in half and spread with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.

Grill polenta and tomatoes on a hot grill for 5 minutes, flipping once. Serve hot.
