Default polenta

Was doing a casual look-see for recipes on the web, and came across many using polenta, mainly Italian and sounding like pure heaven. Has anyone any experience with this? There were instructions on various ways to make home-made polenta also, so if anyone has tried that would be interested in how it came out.

Default POLENTA with Leeks & gorgonzola recipie i have tried...

Hey Ostarella,

mmmmmmm this is another one of my favorites and i have to say, its really darn good!!
This is how i have made Polenta. I hope you enjoy !!!

Ingra


2 tablespoons Sesame Seed Oil
Salt and pepper
2 very large leeks, white only (about 1 1/2 cups, sliced)
6 to 7 cups Organic vegetable broth
1 cup coarse or regular polenta (yellow cornmeal)
3 ounces Gorgonzola (OPTIONAL)
Chopped flat-leaf parsley leaves

Clean the leeks thoroughly, cut them in 1/2 lengthwise, then slice them quite thinly crosswise. Heat 2 tablespoons Sesame seed oil in non-stick pan and saute the leeks, stirring them often, until they are soft and beginning to color. Add a little sprinkle of salt—but not too much.
Heat 6 cups of broth in a medium-sized saucepan and whisk in the polenta. Lower the heat and simmer the polenta, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, or at least very often, until it is thick and smooth, about 30 minutes. Stir in the sauteed leeks;(OPTIONAL) break the Gorgonzola into chunks and stir it in. Keep stirring until the cheese is all melted into the cornmeal. The polenta should be thick and smooth, but not stiff. If it is holding a shape as you stir it, gradually mix in a bit more vegetable broth.
Ladle the polenta into warm, shallow bowls or onto warm plates. Scatter some fresh flat-leaf parsley across the top and serve at once…………………… with a good red wine.
