Here's a simple and delicious recipe for polenta without cheese: Ingredients: - 1 cup coarsely ground cornmeal (polenta) - 4 cups water - 1 teaspoon salt - 2 tablespoons olive oil (or butter) - Freshly ground black pepper (optional) - Fresh herbs for garnish (optional, such as chopped parsley, basil, or thyme) Instructions: 1. In a large saucepan, bring 4 cups of water to a boil. While the water is heating, measure out the cornmeal and have it ready. 2. Once the water is boiling, slowly and carefully pour the cornmeal into the water in a steady stream. Be sure to whisk continuously to prevent any lumps from forming. 3. Add the salt and continue to whisk the mixture. Lower the heat to maintain a gentle simmer. 4. Cook the polenta for 25-30 minutes, stirring frequently to avoid sticking or clumping. The polenta is ready when it's thick, creamy, and the grains are tender. 5. Remove the pan from heat and stir in the olive oil (or butter) until fully incorporated. Taste the polenta and adjust the seasoning with salt and freshly ground black pepper (if desired). 6. If you want to add some extra flavor, you can mix in some chopped fresh herbs such as parsley, basil, or thyme. 7. Immediately transfer the cooked polenta to a serving dish while it's still hot. You can serve it creamy and soft, or let it set up and cool for a few minutes to achieve a more solid, sliceable consistency. 8. Enjoy your cheese-free polenta with your favorite accompaniments, such as grilled vegetables, sautéed mushrooms, or a hearty tomato-based sauce.
