Creamy Polenta

This easy polenta takes only a few minutes of stirring before it’s left to cook on its own to creamy perfection. If you have leftovers, chill them overnight in a greased pan, slice into slabs, brush with canola oil and broil until both sides begin to crisp. Serve as a side dish at supper or for breakfast with maple syrup or honey.

Serves 8

Prep Time 10 min

Total Time 70 min.


  • 1 1/3 cups cornmeal
  • 6 cups cold water
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Combine cornmeal, water and salt in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens, about 5 minutes. Partially cover the pan, reduce the heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until thick and very creamy, 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Step 2

Remove from the heat, cover and let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
