This is an easy Instant pot Polenta recipe that I know you are going to want to make again and again. It is easy to make with no stirring required.

Around the world, the Italian polenta has the reputation of being hard to cook. That can be true, but now to cook polenta in instant pot, you will not need to stirring all time. You’ll not need to feeling like you are building upper-arm strength, threatening to splatter your forearms when all you wanted to do was cook creamy dish for your family.

The pressure cooker or instant pot isn’t necessarily a faster way to cook creamy polenta or grits. It’s convenient tool because with it you don’t need any more to stir the mixture. In this recipe what can make it easy is to thin it down with broth (vegetarian broth or chicken broth…) depending on the consistency you desire for serving.

What is polenta?

“Polenta” or “Italian polenta” is a ground cornmeal that is cultivated today in northern Italy specifically for polenta. It comes in a coarse or fine grind, regular or instant.

Selection of polenta

When you want to shop polenta i know that’s cause a lot of confusion. What i want you to do when you go in the supermarket is to find essentially coarsely ground cornmeal, that each little granule about the size of couscous. One more thing is you should avoid buying plastic-wrapped tubes filled with a firm yellow mush. For Italian polenta i recommend you to buy the packages labeled “polenta” or “corn grits” but not the instant kinds.
