Polenta Soup with Crispy Pancetta and Kale

This is our take on polentina, a traditional Italian peasant soup that’s not much more than brothy polenta. We, however, add pancetta, leeks and rosemary to give the dish complexity and round out the flavor of the corn. Topped with broth-blanched kale laced with sweet-tart pickled peppers, this soup is a light but satisfying meal in a bowl.

Tip

Don't allow the soup to boil after the cornmeal is added. Slow simmering ensures the consistency doesn't become too thick or gluey.
