For a creamier result, replace some of the hot stock with milk.

Serves: 6


1½ cups polenta
7½ cups hot vegetable stock (boiling water and a stock cube is okay)
2 tablespoons butter (or olive oil)


Heat the oven to 200°C.

Pour the polenta into a large, high-sided ovenproof dish. Slowly pour in the hot stock, whisking constantly.

Add 1 teaspoon of salt and the butter and stir again.

Transfer the dish to the oven and bake, uncovered, for 45-55 minutes until the polenta is thick. Stir well and serve.
