This is a very easy to make, traditional Romanian dish that T1 and T2 love. Actually, traditionally it is made only with sourcream and cheese, but I thought I should make a twist and add our beloved greens and that was so much better. Cheese and scallions polenta was gone so fast! You have to try this. It’s fast to make, easy, and tasty too.
I went for goat cheese this time, since it was the only available in my refrigerator and honestly, we prefer goat dairy when in season especially (during spring and summer), but you can try any cheese you like (cheddar, mozzarella would work great too). The idea of adding roasted sesame seeds was T1’s and it was a really great idea.
