Servings: six.

 

Ingredients

  • 1 quart whole milk

Preparation

  • Bring the milk to a boil in a 4-quart saucepan over medium-high heat. Season with 2 tsp. salt. Slowly whisk in the polenta and cook, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes until the polenta thickens and begins to pull away from the sides of the pan.
  • Add the goat cheese and cayenne. Whisk until well combined. Whisk in the cream and 1/2 to 1 cup water to thin the polenta to a porridge-like consistency. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Pair with spiced, seared rib-eye steak. Or for a vegetarian meal, top with sautéed wild mushrooms or a quick tomato sauce.
