Polenta (Australian Certified Organic) 500g

Organic Polenta is made by coarsely stone-milling the yellow corn (maize) kernel into a gritty-textured meal, then sifting out the bran and flour. Polenta is very quick to cook and is naturally free from gluten. Originally a peasant food valued due to its nourishing content, it has now been given new life - with rich toppings such as meat and mushroom sauces as well as the addition of vegetables, beans and cheeses into the mixture.

No GMO. Preservative and additive free.

How to Use

Storage: Keep refrigerated at or below 4°C.

Polenta is a great alternative to rice so try adding your favourite stir-fry vegetables to it!

How to cook polenta
The basic ratio for cooking polenta is 4 parts liquid to 1 part polenta. You can use any number of liquids to make polenta such as plain water, milk or stock. 

1. Bring liquid to a boil in a saucepan on high. Add 1 tsp salt. 
2. Pour polenta slowly into water, stirring. Continue stirring as mixture thickens, 2 to 3 minutes. Turn heat to low. 
3. Cook for at least 45 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes or so. 
4. If polenta becomes too thick, thin it by adding some water, stir well and continue cooking.
5. Finish with butter or cream to achieve a creamier texture. 
6. Taste and season as desired. Serve with cheese of your choice, or fresh herbs or as a side for stew.
