Soft Polenta: Oven Method

Serves 4-6

 

This hands-off technique makes excellent polenta with very little effort or time on the cook's part. It results in creamy polenta with a very rich flavor.

  • 1 quart water
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 cup coarse-ground cornmeal
  • 2 tablespoons butter

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a 1 to 1-1/2 quart container, stir together the water, salt, pepper, and cornmeal. Add the butter in pieces. Place the container, uncovered, in the center of the top rack of the oven and bake for 40 minutes. Open the oven, pull out the rack, and stir the polenta. (This is the time to add any additional ingredients such as cheese, as well.) Close the oven and bake the polenta for an additional 10 minutes. Remove it from the oven, let rest for 5 minutes, and serve.
