Breakfast: Polenta With Peaches



Our Farmer's Market smells like orchard lately: peaches are in it's season. Baskets filled with a velvety fruits and delicate aroma invite the visitors from many stands. We've been eating peaches for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and in between for two weeks. Our home is perfumed with a lovely peach aroma. 
I am experimenting with peaches in unusual (for us) meals. For example: polenta for breakfast with peaches and agave nectar. Easy, but healthy and delicious start of the day. Why it is unusual? Because we eat polenta with cheeses, mushrooms, vegetables, in other words savory. 


Polenta with peaches and agave nectar
Cook polenta following the instruction on the package, and serve with peach slices and agave nectar. 


Dear friends, have you made an unusual meal with the peaches? 


See you,
Marina

    1. It is interesting how season moves from the south to north, so if you want to travel, you can be in same season for a while, like strawberries or peaches... :)

  13. We have the best tree ripened peaches in the stores right now. I eat them on cereal or oatmeal...or by themselves. I have never made polenta...now I'm wondering if I would like it!
