Stove top Instructions:

  • 4 cups water
  • 1½ teaspoons salt
  • 1 cup Wine Forest Porcini Polenta
  • ½ cup grated parmesan (optional)
  • 2 to 3 Tablespoons butter (optional)
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • chopped parsley
  1. In a heavy saucepan boil 4 cups of water and the1½ teaspoons salt. While whisking, slowly pour in 1 cup polenta.
  2. Bring to boil again, put lid on slightly ajar and turn heat down to a simmer. As the polenta starts thickening, thoroughly stir all sides and bottom of the pan. Repeat every 5 minutes. Cook 35 - 40 minutes total.
  3. When done, add the grated parmesan, pepper and/or the butter. Sprinkle with some chopped parsley.

Microwave Instructions:

To each 1 cup of polenta mix, stir in 4 cups of water and 1 1/2 t salt into a pyrex bowl and cover with a plate.

Microwave on high for 9 minutes, or until just bubbling near the center. Remove, briskly stir in some parmesan cheese and / or butter and pepper to taste.

For a thicker polenta, cook another two minutes.

Tips and Techniques:

Pouring the cooked polenta in a rectangular pan, letting it cool, then cutting it into rectangles or squares opens possibilities for all sorts of dishes.

  • Grill the rectangles to serve atop a vegetable stew.
  • Sauté the shapes in olive oil until golden and use as croutons atop salads or soups.
  • Broil cheese-topped portions and serve as appetizers.

Substitutions and Variations:

Milk can be substituted for a portion of the water. Experiment with different cheeses like cheddar, or even a spot of gorgonzola. Fold some cleaned chopped kale or spinach into the hot polenta and let it gently wilt before serving. For a more hearty and complete dish, add some cooked white beans as well as greens.
