Easy, healthy side dish

I wasn't sure what Polenta was until I tried out this recipe. The result was a healthy and yummy side dish. I love raisins and this is one easy dish to make. It is a little to the sweet side.

This was a good cold morning breakfast. It was a little too sweet so next time I will reduce the amount of syrup.
