Creamy Polenta Soup With Spinach (Paparot)

I watched an episode of "Lydia's Italy" on PBS the other day and she made this deliciously comforting and simple soup using polenta. I made it and it will surely please your family (and your pocketbook). Enjoy!

  • 1. Tip: For a smooth and velvety soup like Lydia's, I pulsed my cornmeal in my food processor for about 20 seconds before starting the recipe. First, whisk the polenta and flour in a saucepan.
  • 2. Starting with 1 cup of broth, whisk the broth and polenta-flour mixture and remove any lumps. Add the butter and salt and stir.
  • 3. Continue adding broth while whisking and place on medium-high heat to bring to a boil. Lower to medium heat and simmer soup for 25 minutes. Stir gently.
  • 4. Add spinach to soup and stir. Continue cooking on medium-low heat for 10 minutes. If using, serve with grated parmesan cheese and a drizzle of olive oil. Enjoy.

    I'm giving this 3 stars but that's probably just personal preference. I always think I'm going to like polenta more than I do! There's nothing wrong with the recipe; I think it just doesn't suit my tastes. It was very easy and no doubt polenta lovers will enjoy this.
