Soft Oven Polenta

Soft Oven Polenta created by iamafoodblog

Comfort Food! Most polenta recipes (at least the ones I've seen) call for stove-top cooking and a lot of stirring. This recipe gives excellent results without all that. This recipe was adapted from one in the L.A. Times. Give credit to their Test-kitchen staff.

    Very good. I add boiled water, cooks much faster and doesn’t require additional time if doubling the recipe

    Lumpy. There's a reason it needs to be whisked constantly on the stovetop. Tasted fine, but lumpy.
