Polenta is made by grinding corn into a flour or meal, and is a staple in Northern Italian, Swiss, and Balkan cuisines. Traditionally associated with lower classes, polenta is now found in many different tables around the world, popular for its taste and health benefits.
It’s a rich yellow color, reminiscent of the corn it’s made with. It’s slightly sweet in flavor, but only very slightly. It’s mostly neutral, though, which makes it a great partner to many dishes.
Traditionally, it’s served as a sort of hot porridge. Simply boil salted water in a heavy-bottom sauce pan, and pour in the polenta. Whisk vigorously and continually to avoid forming lumps. Reduce heat once boiling, but keep whisking until smooth and creamy. Feel free to add Parmesan, truffle oil, or herbs to flavor it.
After that, you can serve it in place of pasta, rice, or potatoes. Top it with some roasted vegetables, a meaty pasta sauce, or eat it with roast beef.
You can also make polenta fries.
