Polenta

VEGAN – SOY FREE – NUT FREE – OIL FREE

Polenta is an incredibly versatile staple in a whole food plant based diet as it can be a canvas to any number of ragouts and sauces. We offer 2 ways of making it: the traditional Italian stove top way that requires some watching and some stirring and the effortless oven-baked way for when you just can’t be bothered. Please do purchase organic or non GMO verified cornmeal if you can find it.

PREP 3 minutes

COOKING 45 minutes

PORTIONS serves 6

Ingredients

1 cup cornmeal (we prefer fine for soft polenta but medium will also do)

5 cups water for traditional method, 4 cups for effortless method

Salt and pepper to taste

Preparation

Traditional method

1. Combine cornmeal and water in a large saucepan and bring to boil whisking as you go so no clumps form.

2. Turn heat to low, and keep cooking for about 40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes or so and adding water to desired consistence if it becomes too thick.

3. Adjust salt and pepper and serve immediately.

Effortless method

1. Preheat oven to 350. In an 8 x 8 oven-proof glass dish, combine cornmeal with water.

2. Add salt and pepper and stir to combine.

3. After 30 minutes, stir polenta and return to oven for 15 more minutes.
