Creamy Polenta

Creamy polenta! Perfect for serving with ribs, chicken, lamb chops, or veal.
Ingredients

Main Course
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt (or 1 teaspoon if using salted butter)
  • 1 cup medium-grain yellow polenta
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup cream cheese

To finish the cake:
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes, toasted
  • 1 cup lemon curd
  • 1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
Directions
  • Heat salted water (1 1/2 teaspoons of salt for 1 quart of water) to a boil over high heat in a thick-bottomed 2 or 3 quart pan, about 5 minutes. Quickly whisk in the polenta until fully incorporated.
  • Lower the heat to a very low simmer, add the butter and allow the polenta to cook, stirring occasionally so it doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan, for 25 minutes.
  • Finish by stirring in the cream cheese until it has melted into the polenta. Taste and add more salt if necessary. (You can also add more cream cheese if you want it to be even creamier.)
