Soft Polenta with Easy Toppings (Fast & Slow)

Thick, creamy polenta is a breeze to make in a pressure cooker, as the cooking is completely hands-off. This polenta is not enriched with butter or cheese, so the sweetness of the corn is front and center. A simple topping (recipes below; each makes enough for four servings) can turn a bowl of plain polenta into a light meal or a delicious first course. Polenta also is a perfect accompaniment to many stews and braises, such as Tuscan Beef and Black Pepper Stew, or serve it in place of pasta with Short Rib Ragu.

Ingredients
  • cups coarse stoneground yellow cornmeal

  • Kosher salt and ground black pepper

Directions
  1. 01
    In a 6-quart Instant Pot, whisk together 7½ cups water, the polenta and 2½ teaspoons salt.
