Sweet Potato Polenta

No recipe image available.Smooth and creamy sweet potato polenta with a hint of maple.

Recipe Ingredients:

1 large sweet potato, peeled and diced
8 cups water
2 cups stone-ground yellow cornmeal
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Cooking Directions:

  1. Place the sweet potato and water in a large pot and bring to a boil over high heat. Cook until very tender, about 20 minutes.
  2. Gradually pour in the cornmeal, whisking all the while and pressing down on the potato to break it up, being sure some texture remains.
  3. When the mixture begins to bubble lower the heat to medium-low and cook until cornmeal begins to thicken about 10 to 15 minutes.
  4. Slowly whisk in remaining ingredients. Continue cooking until the polenta just begins to pull away from the sides of the pan. Serve immediately.

Makes 6 servings.
