Truffled Polenta

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.

Yield: 2 servings (serving size: 3/4 cup polenta and 3/4 teaspoon oil)
