Well, howíd you like some nice healthy Polenta?
Itís easy (with a microwave).
It doesnít taste too bad, if you add stuff to it.
IF by some chance, you microwave has power settings from 1 to 10 (or 1 to 0 with 0 being equivalent to 10), and your microwave is about 800 watts (donít worry about checking, it doesnít really matter), AND it has a rotating turntable inside, AND youíre cooking about a cup of raw polenta, set your cooking time to 5 minutes at, oh, 50%.
Put the bowl of uncooked gruel in the middle of the turntable and let it cook for the full five minutes. If itís too hard for your taste at the end of five minutes, remember that five minutes is too long, otherwise, A) eat it, if it seems edible, or B) stir it around to evenly mix the hard and soft parts, and put it back into the microwave for TWO minutes, at 50% and let it cook.
If a fork stuck into it stays upright, itís done.
Or even better, if it looks good to you, itís done.
Oh yeah, if youíve had traditional polenta and have enjoyed it and have any pointers, let me know
