Polenta has gone upscale, but it's easy to make at home for pennies. Another bonus: Pressure-cooked polenta doesn’t need stirring. You might end up with a lump or two but cooking this way saves a lot of time. Adding sun-dried tomatoes (see variation below) or dried mushrooms when cooking polenta adds big flavors.
Be sure to get coarse polenta (sometimes called coarse corn grits), rather than corn meal or corn flour which are much finer and will turn your pressure cooker into a fine mess.
