This recipe is for the polenta novice. Two ingredients - polenta and water. So if you can boil water ...you can make a fabulous pot of polenta. Every time!
INGREDIENTS (for 3 servings):
- 3 cups water
- 1 cup polenta
Bring water to a boil. Reduce to a simmer. Pour in polenta steadily, stirring constantly. Continue to stir until polenta is thickened. It should come away from sides of the pan, and be able to support a spoon. This can take anywhere from 20 to 50 minutes. Pour polenta onto a wooden cutting board, let stand for a few minutes.
