    Desree42's Note:

    This is a great hard polenta recipe. In fact, with a few modifications, I used this for my final cooking practical in culinary school. Allow this to set and use for croutons, grill, sauté, or whatever.

    1. 1
      In a sauce pan sweat the shallot and garlic with a little bit of olive oil until cooked (translucent).
    2. 2
      Add the water and quickly bring to a boil.
    3. 3
      Gradually whisk in the polenta a little at a time until all the polenta is in the water (to prevent lumps).
    4. 4
      Turn the heat down to medium-low flame and cook the polenta until done (about 40 minutes or when the polenta 'pulls' away from the sides of the pan).
    5. 5
      Stir frequently so the polenta doesn't crust on the bottom of the pan--this makes cleanup MUCH easier.
    6. 6
      In another pan sweat the corn until fully cooked, no colour, then remove from heat.
    7. 7
      When the polenta is done fold in the corn and grated cheese.
    8. 8
      Season with salt and pepper to taste.
    9. 9
      Layout on a pan or into a mold and refrigerate until firm (20 minutes).
    10. 10
      To serve: Sauté, grill, toss with flour and fry for croutons, etc-- the options are endless!
    11. 11
      As an extra option, use 5 cups of water instead of 4 for a soft polenta. Serve warm out of the pan and elevate it by adding some marscapone cheese, whipped cream, or roasted mushrooms.

      Great recipe! I made it quite differently- left out the cheese and added crushed red pepper, chile powder, and extra garlic to go with a Tex-Mex meal. Still a great double-corn polenta recipe! (Hard polenta I guess!!)
