    Kozmic Blues's Note:

    First time making polenta, and it came out AMAZING. Polenta can be served soft, right after cooking, or poured into a baking pan to cool. Once cool, the polenta can be cut into squares, and served with your favorite pasta sauce. Or, once it is cooled, cut the polenta into 1" x 2" sticks abd fry lightly in some olive oil until golden. the possibilities are endless.

      A very nice basic polenta recipe. The directions were very good. I do think that the polenta was cooked in more like 20 minutes. This was served with Chicken Stew W/Polenta.

      Excellent, basic polenta recipe. Mine was cooked in about 20 minutes. I then made my fattening by adding 2T margarine, 2T almond milk, and about 1 cup of shredded sharp swiss cheese. Also threw some fresh chives on top. Delish!! Had this tonight creamy style, then put about half of it in a baking dish to cool and cut into squares for another meal. Made for both Veg*n Swap 3 and October Photo Challenge Northern Mediterranean.
