This was absolutely gorgeous! I used white corn meal, fresh thyme leaves, homemade vegetable stock and a really earthy raw goat's milk gouda instead of the parmesan. I plan to bake it and top it with a roasted tomato and mushroom chutney (the polenta is currently cooling in the 'fridge). It tastes sooo good, I had to have a little bowl of it hot, straight out of the pot! Thanks, we'll be making this again!
This was my first time making (and eating) polenta and we loved it! I actually used water instead of broth by accident (a houseguest was talking to me and apparently I can't multitask on a Sunday nite) and it was still delicious. I added about a T of butter at the end of cooking and topped it with a spoonful of spicy marinara sauce. Delicious! It will definitely become a staple in our house.
