Instructions Checklist
  • Bring Silk and salt to a boil in a medium saucepan. Slowly stir in cornmeal.

    Advertisement
  • Return to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes until very thick, stirring often to prevent polenta from sticking to pan.

  • Remove from heat and stir in cream cheese and margarine until fully incorporated.

  • Spoon into a serving dish or press gently into a large oiled bowl, then turn over for molded polenta.

  • Garnish with parsley, chives or other chopped herbs.

I'm not vegan so instead of the non-dairy cream cheese I used 1/4 c of grated Parmesan/Romano and a touch more butter. It was the perfect consistency--I used a small greased ramekin as a mold and the polenta held its shape beautifully without being too dense. My family absolutely loved it and I will definitely be making it again! Read More

used instant polenta and adjusted time - still came out great! Nice and creamy. Would consider adding nutritional yeast or a touch more coconut milk for a smoother polenta. Read More

I used a little over a half a cup of polenta. I added about a half cup of regular grass fed low fat milk in addition to one can of coconut milk. It came out well. It had form but was still semi soft. I will make it again. Read More
