Dive into a world of comfort with every spoonful of Creamy Parmesan Polenta. This dish is a cozy embrace on a plate, where velvety-smooth polenta dances with the rich, nutty notes of Parmesan cheese. With each bite, your taste buds embark on a journey through layers of flavor, from the initial creamy texture to the lingering savoriness that warms your soul.


4 C. water

1 C. milk

1 t. sea salt
1 C. course ground polenta or cornmeal
5 T. butter, divided

1/2 C freshly grated Parmesan cheese (2 oz.) plus more for serving

Fresh rosemary or parsley (optional) for serving


  1. Heat water and milk in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil.

  2. Once water starts to bubble, add salt and gradually whisk in cornmeal. Continue whisking to prevent lumps from forming. Reduce the heat to a gentle simmer and cook, covered 25-30 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes or so, so that polenta does not stick to bottom of pan. Polenta will thicken as it cooks.

  3. Once it is finished cooking, remove from heat.

  4. Add 3-1/2 tablespoons of butter and 1/2 cup of grated Parmesan cheese. Stir until incorporated.

  5. Taste and adjust the seasoning as needed.

  6. Ladle into serving bowls. Serve warm, sprinkled with additional Parmesan cheese, a small pat of butter and fresh herbs on each bowl.

  7. Enjoy!
