Bustopher's Polenta Four Ways


This recipe, along with "Chicken and Mashed Bustatoes", is adapted from "Dr. Pitcairn's Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs & Cats" and it's formulated for cats with renal failure.

The original recipe calls for white rice, but Alicia wanted to try something a little less refined and more flavorful.  Sheba's all about the polenta, and she loves variety in her diet.   This dish makes her really clean her plate, it agrees with her stomach, and it's fast and easy to make.

It's called "Four Ways" because Sheba eats it with chicken, turkey, duck or canned mackerel.


Makes enough for one week.

about 1 1/3 cups protein : cooked organic shredded chicken, turkey, duck or canned mackerel 
2 cups dry organic polenta
2 cups water or low-sodium chicken broth, preferably homemade
one pinch of sea salt
4 organic eggs
2 tbs cold-pressed organic safflower oil
1.5 teaspoons steamed bone meal, such as Solid Gold's
5,000 IU Vitamin A
2,000 mg taurine
50 mg Vitamin B complex
2500 mg Vitamin C

Put the polenta, the water or broth and the salt in a saucepan.  Bring to a boil, then lower the heat to a simmer and cover, stirring occasionally to prevent the mixture from sticking.  Cook until the polenta has absorbed all the liquid, about 20 minutes.  Fluff.

Break the eggs into a bowl and beat them together with all the bone meal and vitamins to form a gross-looking healthy slurry.  Then combine the egg mixture with the polenta, the salt and the safflower oil and mix well.

Stir the meat into the egg/polenta mixture, or put it all together for a couple of spins in a food processor. 

Serve warm, with a little bit of healthy powder sprinkled on top.
