Truffled Polenta

Yield 2 servings (serving size: 3/4 cup polenta and 3/4 teaspoon oil)
A two-ounce bottle of truffle oil costs about $12, but a little goes a long way to add an earthy and seductive fragrance to this easy side dish. Look for small bottles of the oil in gourmet grocery stores or online. It's also delicious drizzled over mashed potatoes or risotto.

  • 1 cup fat-free milk
  • 1/3 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup dry instant polenta
  • 1/4 cup (1 ounce) grated fresh Parmesan cheese
