Polenta can be seasoned in many different ways. A very tasty and creamy blue cheese goes well with polenta.
|3 1/2 cups||water||900 mL|
|1 tsp||salt||4 g|
|1 1/2 cup||cornmeal (polenta)||200 g|
|120 g||Gorgonzola cheese, or another creamy blue cheese|
Before you start
Use 1 part flour to 4 parts water (or broth or milk), but increase the amount of liquid if the cornmeal contains coarser grains or if you want a softer result ("all'onda", i.e., polenta that has a ripple effect).
- Add the water and salt to a saucepan. Bring the water to a gentle boil (not to a rolling boil in order to avoid lumps). Slowly pour in a continuous stream of cornmeal, stirring constantly. Reduce the heat to low and cook uncovered, stirring occasionally-
- Have a small pan of boiling water on the side, to dilute the polenta if it is too thick to your taste.
- The polenta is cooked when it pulls away from the sides of the pan, about 40 min.
- Stir in the cheese then serve. If the blue cheese is not creamy enough, you may need to add some butter.
