Creamy Polenta

This is such an easy way to prepare polenta, saving you the bother of continuous stirring over the stove top.

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 3/4 cup cornmeal
  • 3 cups water
  • Pinch of salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup freshly chopped parsley (optional)


Heat oven to 425 degrees.

Whisk cornmeal with water in an 8 X 8 inch baking dish, and add salt and pepper, and whisk once more. Cover tightly with foil and bake for 15 minutes. Remove foil, stir, cover again, and bake for another 15 minutes.

Remove from oven and stir with a wire whisk until creamy, adding a little nonfat or low-fat milk if necessary. Add freshly chopped parsley if desired.

Serves 4-6

Boring :(, Member ditzydana

This was a really boring meal. We added some cheese to make it edibable and then it was okay. We probably wouldn't make it again unless we had nothing else because is was inexpensive.
