I have bought tubes of polenta, but never made my own until now. This recipe was easy, economical, and definitely the best polenta I have ever tasted. If you’ve been thinking that polenta is just bland mush, this recipe may change your mind.
1/2 c. yellow cornmeal
1 1/2 c. vegetable broth, divided
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 c. (2 oz.) crumbled feta cheese
Combine cornmeal and 1/2 c. broth in small bowl; mix well. Set aside. Pour remaining 1 c. broth into large heavy saucepan; bring to a boil. Add garlic and moistened grits; mix well. Return to a boil. Reduce heat to low. Cover; cook 20 minutes. Remove from heat; add feta cheese. Stir until cheese is completely melted. Spray a loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray. Spoon mixture into prepared pan. With wet fingertips, press polenta evenly into pan. Refrigerate until cold.
Spray a frying pan with nonstick cooking spray. Turn polenta out onto cutting board, cut into squares, and then cut each square diagonally into 2 triangles. Cook over medium-high heat 1 minute or until bottoms are lightly browned. Turn triangles over; grill until browned and crisp. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Sounds good, I might try it! Kelly
Question? Do you use grits or cornmeal? Cornmeal is finer than grits. Also approx how many does it make.—thanks
Hi- I used regular yellow cornmeal, and I cut it into 4 triangles. But you could press the mixture into a larger dish, making a thinner layer, and then it would be easier to cut it into more pieces. If you try that, let me know what you think!
Will do! Thanks or the info.:)
I’m going to try this recipe out tomorrow night! Sounds so easy and yummy. 🙂
My grandmother used to make polenta for my dad and me, no one else liked it, when I was little. The best was when she’d toast a slice and send me on my way. This sounds just as yummy.
