Flavored Polenta

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Marlena

I use this recipe because I find cornmeal too bland when cooked with plain water.

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!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put all cornmeal, broth, and seasoning in a pot and stir brisky, preferably with a whisk. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Cook until mixture is thick and creamy. Stir in cheese.
  2. Can be eaten as a mush at this point, otherwise, pour into a casserole dish and chill. When it is solid, cut into slices and fry in butter or oil until browned on both sides. Serve with warmed pasta sauce.
