Whey Polenta


Whey Polenta

Adrian J. S. Hale

Ingredients
  

  • 5 cups whey
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 cup coarsely ground polenta not quick cooking
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Pesto or toasted nuts to garnish

Instructions
 

  • Heat whey in a large pot over medium-high heat. Season with salt. When whey comes to a boil, drizzle in polenta and stir to prevent clumping until it starts to rehydrate, about 2 minutes. Turn heat to low and cover. Cook about 30 minutes, lifting lid every 5 minutes to stir, ensuring that polenta is not sticking to bottom of the pot. Remove from heat and add butter and a generous amount of black pepper, to taste. Serve as is, or top with a dollop of pesto and toasted nuts.
