This was my first time cooking and tasting polenta. I really can’t believe what I’ve been missing all this time. It’s so fluffy and full of flavors. It will be one of my staple foods from now on.
A few tips on making polenta:
1- I used cooked and ground corn flour, which in my supermarket is in the international food shelf and already called “polenta”. Other corn flours would work too, but this way is much easier.
2- The measure is something around 1:4. So for two people I used 100g of flour with 420ml of water.
3- Bring the water to a boil (with salt) and once it’s boiling, add the flour slowly while stirring. Do this for 3-4 minutes until you have a creamy consistency.
4- Add 1 tablespoon of nutritional yeast and 1 teaspoon of nutmeg. If you want to make it creamier, add 1 tablespoon of vegetable margarine. Do this while stirring.
And that’s it. I had mine today with a red pepper, kale & black bean stew and it was delicious.
