Soft polenta

Sclopit herb butter

To serve

  • 100ml of sour cream
  • 2 tbsp of double cream
  • 12 violet flowers
  • poppy seeds
To cook the polenta, place the water and salt in a large pan and bring to the boil over a medium heat. Pour in the polenta in a steady stream, whisking continuously
Turn the heat down very low and cover the pan with a lid. Allow to cook gently for 40 minutes , stirring occasionally
Meanwhile, place the sclopit and butter in a food processor and blitz until fully combined – the result should be a smooth, vibrant green butter. Set aside until the polenta is cooked through
In a small bowl, whisk a spoonful of the double cream into the sour cream to create a slightly looser texture – if still too thick, mix in the second spoonful. Transfer to a piping bag and reserve in the fridge until ready to serve
  • 100ml of sour cream
  • 2 tbsp of double cream
Once the polenta has thickened and is cooked through and soft, remove the pan from the heat and mix in the sclopit butter until the polenta is creamy and an even green colour
Divide the soft green polenta between serving bowls. Remove the cream from the fridge and pipe swirls over each before garnishing with a sprinkling of poppy seeds and a few edible violet flowers
