Thought you might like a low carb 'polenta'

I've just been messing about in the kitchen, and had a stab at making low carb cheese sauce with ground almonds, cheddar, veg stock (lactose intolerant, so I avoid dairy milk) and seasoning. Didn't quite work. Result was a thick, grainy liquid that was almost, but not quite, entirely unlike cheese sauce.

So I beat in an egg and cooked it like a custard. Result was almost exactly like polenta!

Next time I'm going to use less water and leave it to cool. See if it will set and slice like polenta.

Oh that sounds interesting - how did I miss this?! I love polenta with gorgonzola, so it could be worth trying with that instead of cheddar?

No idea. Try it, and report back!
