  • Prep Time


  • Total Time


  • Servings



  • cups low-salt chicken broth (preferably organic)

  • 2

    tablespoons unsalted butter

  • Kosher salt

  • 1

    cup polenta (Italian cornmeal) or regular cornmeal

  • 1

    cup frozen corn kernels, thawed


Bring the broth, 2 1/2 cups water, butter and 1 teaspoon salt to a boil in a heavy, large saucepan over high heat. Gradually whisk in the polenta. Continue to whisk until the polenta begins to thicken, 2 to 3 minutes. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook until the polenta is very thick and tender, stirring often with a flat-bottom spoon or heatproof rubber spatula to prevent sticking or burning, about 20 minutes. Blend the corn in a mini processor until a coarse puree forms. Stir the corn puree into the polenta. Season with more salt if desired.
