      This recipe is absolutely brilliant! Fantastic polenta without all the stirring and sputtering, and no messy pan to clean! I've made this twice already; the first time the polenta was lumpy after 6 minutes, though it did smooth out after vigorous stirring; the second time I added a Tbl or two of butter and cooked it 5 minutes, then stirred, 2 minutes, then stirred, and 3 minutes more, and it turned out absolutely perfect. (I'm not sure how many watts my microwave is, but it's a GE Spacesaver a couple years old.) The second time I also experimented with using cajun seasoning and seasoning salt, adding onion powder, and stirring in some parmesan cheese at the end, which made a delicious savory dish that could be served immediately, as well as chilled and pan-fried. Other suggestions for containers -- a sprayed or buttered pie pan or 8X8 baking dish. Many thanks to you and your Mom, Darlene, for this recipe I'll use again and again!

      What a great, quick way to make such a delicious food! I never thought of putting maple syrup on it; tastes wonderful! Thanks for sharing!

      Thank you for such a simple, great recipe! I, too, had to play with the timing a bit-- probably my microwave's fault-- but a small price to pay for an easy side dish! I've yet to try it as a breakfast food, but have made it 3 or 4 times with fresh, steamed string beans and a bowl of vegan chili. A keeper!

      This is a great way to make polenta! I followed the previous reviewers' suggestions for times and it worked well. I added in about 2 tsp of sugar when I was making it as I wanted a sweetened version. I made this up in the morning to have for lunch. I like to fry mine in small cubes and sprinkle it with sugar just before eating. What a great, quick lunch! Thanks for posting. This will be my regular polenta recipe from now on!
