INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup Organic Polenta

METHOD

  1. The basic ratio for cooking polenta is 4 parts liquid to 1 part polenta. You can use a variety of liquids to make polenta - from plain water, to milk or stock.
  2. Bring liquid to a boil in a saucepan on high. Add 1 tsp salt. Pour polenta slowly into the liquid, stirring. Continue stirring as the mixture thickens, 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. Turn heat to low. Cook for at least 45 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes or so. If polenta becomes thick, thin it out with water, stir well and continue cooking.
  4. Finish with butter or cream if you would like a creamy taste and flavour. Taste and check for final seasoning. Serve with cheese of your choice, or fresh herbs or as a side for stew.
