Black Pudding Ragù with Parmesan Polenta

by

Thomasina Miers

Ingredients

For the Ragù

1 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 Onions, finely chopped
1 Garlic Clove, crushed
1 Tsp Hot Smoked Paprika
½ Tsp Ground Cinnamon
250g good quality Black Pudding
2 x 400g tins Chopped Tomatoes
1 Tsp Red Wine Vinegar
3 sprigs Fresh Thyme, picked
1 Tsp Brown Sugar

For the Polenta

200g Polenta
25g Unsalted Butter
25g grated Parmesan

Sea Salt and freshly ground Black Pepper, for seasoning

To finish

25g Pine Nuts
Chopped Parsley

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan, add the onions and cook on a medium heat for 15 minutes, until softened but not too coloured. Add the garlic, fry for a minute more, then stir in first the spices and then the black pudding, breaking it up with a spoon. Stir in the tomatoes, vinegar, thyme and sugar, bring to a boil, then leave to simmer gently for 45 minutes. Season to taste.
  2. Bring a litre of water to a boil, then pour in the polenta in a slow stream, whisking all the time so there are no lumps (take care, because the mix might spit as it thickens). Once all the polenta is incorporated, turn the heat to low and cook, stirring from time to time, for 20 minutes. Take off the heat and stir in the butter, parmesan and a generous seasoning.
  3. Before serving, toast the pine nuts in a dry pan until lightly golden.

To Serve:

Spoon the polenta into shallow bowls, top with ragù and sprinkle with the pine nuts and parsley.
