Author Notes: Fortunately ready-made polenta is now widely available in most Supermarkets. If you aren't able to find it, or prefer to make it from scratch, place 1 cup of cornmeal in a saucepan and stir in 4 cups of cold water. Whisk vigorously for 1-2 minutes to prevent the mixture from becoming lumpy. Bring the mixture to a gentle simmer and cook until thick, about 30 minutes. Spread evenly into a lightly greased baking pan and chill until firm. This recipe was written by the Healthline Editorial Team: Healthline
