Polenta is flavored with Parmesan cheese, garlic, chives, and paprika. It is cooked on the stove, allowed to set, cut into wedges, and then broiled.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine milk, chives, garlic, salt, and paprika in a medium saucepan, and bring to a boil over high heat. While whisking, slowly sprinkle in polenta. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon, until polenta has thickened, 5 to 8 minutes. Add Parmesan and butter; stir until combined. Pour polenta into an 8 1/2-inch springform pan; let rest until completely set, about 45 minutes at room temperature.

  • Preheat the broiler. Remove the outer ring from the springform pan. Cut the polenta into eight wedges. Coat with olive-oil spray, and place on a rack in the oven several inches underneath the broiler. Broil the polenta until golden brown on top and heated through, about 8 minutes. Serve.
