Polenta is a wonderfully easy recipe that is done in no time at all, and it makes a great side dish. You can also make it the main course. Use it as a base and add roasted vegetables and some fresh herbs and you have a hearty meal in no time at all. 

Vegan Note: You can find non-dairy butters at most health food supermarkets. 

2- 2 1/2 cups of vegetarian broth, or water

4 tbsp.  butter

1 cup cornmeal

2 tbsp.  nutritional yeast (optional)

 salt and pepper to taste

In a medium pot heat the liquid to a boil, add in the butter and stir until melted.

Turn the heat down to medium, and add in the cornmeal stirring constantly until all the liquid is absorbed. Stir in the nutritional yeast and season with salt and pepper.
