  • 5 cups vegetable stock
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 3/4 cups polenta (coarse cornmeal)
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 3/4 cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese (about 4-ounces)
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter


  1. In a medium-sized saucepan, add the salt to the stock and bring to a boil.
  2. Gradually whisk in the polenta. Reduce the heat to low and cook until the mixture thickens and the cornmeal is tender, stirring often, about 20 minutes.
  3. Turn off the heat and add the half and half, cheese, and butter. Stir to blend and serve immediately!
