Homemade Polenta Recipe

This recipe is so good, you’ll be saying, “pass the Polenta!” 



• 6 c. water

• 2 tsp. sea salt

• 1 3/4 c. cornmeal

• 3 tbsp. unsalted butter


• Bring 6 c. water to a boil with 2 tsp. Sea salt.

• Slowly and gradually whisk in cornmeal (to prevent lumps).

• Once mixed, add in butter and mix until melted— polenta will have to

cook for 20-40 minutes before it gets the proper texture.

• Press out onto a tray and allow to cool before frying or scoop hot

polenta into a bowl and top with cheese or marinara (or both!)

To Fry Polenta:

• Allow hot polenta to cool about 2 hours in refrigerator.

• Cut into . inch pieces.

• Heat EVOO in a pan and fry the polenta pieces until crisp on both

side (flipping halfway

• through).

• Sprinkle with Romano or Parmesan cheese and dip hot fried polenta

into marinara!
