Rice Cooker Polenta (Aka No Stir Polenta)

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 20 mins

I am getting tired I guess so when I recently tried another cooking method for a favorite recipe and it was fast, easy and fun I wanted to branch out so I have been working out some other recipes for the same low work approcah. I prefer to add in extras after the polenta is cooked (like cheese for example). Good luck!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup coarse polenta
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon salt (you may want to adjust this to suit you)
  • 2 tablespoons butter


  1. Place the ingredients into your rice cooker and cook on the white rice setting until done.
  2. Add cheese or other ingredients just before serving.

This turned out pretty good. I did stir halfway through and I'm glad I did because there were some lumps. But a whisk took care of it nicely. I'll use this method again and again.
