Polenta is a versatile grain. It’s great savory or sweet. You can flavor it so many ways. This is a favorite with garlic and basil.
1 cup organic polenta (not the quick cooking kind)
3 cups water
6 cloves roasted garlic
1 Tablespoon dried basil
salt to taste
In a saucepan on medium heat, stir together polenta, water, garlic and basil. Cover, stirring regularly, making sure it doesn’t stick to the bottom. Cook until polenta is soft and creamy, about 20-25 minutes. Remove from heat.
Polenta may be served right away with a dollop of vegan butter or poured into a baking dish and allow to cool and get firm. Once firm Polenta may cut in small pieces and grilled or refrigerated until ready to use.
