This delicious polenta dish has a texture similar to grits or mashed potatoes. The goat cheese gives it a slightly tart and extra creamy taste.

How to Make It

Bring water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Gradually add polenta, stirring constantly with a whisk. Reduce heat to low; cook 7 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; stir in goat cheese, basil, pepper, and salt.

This was delicious. I only used 2oz of cheese and it was plenty. I could've eaten the whole thing!

Speaking as someone who isn't a huge fan of polenta in general, I really liked the flavors of this side dish.  The consistency came out a little dry/clumpy but I think that is because I let it sit while I plated the rest of the meal instead of serving immediately.
