How to Cook Polenta
Here’s how to make basic soft polenta, an Italian savory & creamy cornmeal mush served as a starch at lunch or dinner.
- Basic Polenta Proportions:
- 3 parts Chicken Stock
- 1 part Polenta
- 1 Tbsp Butter per 1 cup raw polenta
- Salt & Pepper to taste
Bring the chicken stock to a boil in a pot on the stove.
Pour in the polenta while stirring the stock. Reduce the heat to medium-low.
Cook the polenta, stirring constantly.
Once the liquid has been absorbed by the polenta, you can let it cook without stirring until tender (about 12 minutes total cooking time).
