Microwave Quick Polenta
Quick and easy, micro-cooked polenta. Serve with your favorite tomato, meat or vegetable sauce.
3/4 cup polenta
3 cups water
1/4 teaspoon salt
- Combine the polenta, water and salt in a 3-quart microwave-safe bowl, mixing well. Cover and microwave on HIGH for 8 minutes. Remove and stir briskly until well blended. For thicker polenta, microwave on HIGH for an additional 2 to 3 minutes.
- Serve soft or spoon polenta into a buttered baking dish and let cool until firm. Once firm, cut into squares and reheat in microwave or pan fry in butter or olive oil or a combination of both.
