Comfort in a bowl best describes this dish. Quick-cooking polenta gets extra flavor from being whisked into chicken broth instead of water. If you happen to have homemade stock in your freezer, use it here. Get the most enjoyment by eating the polenta with a soup spoon instead of a fork.

Ingredients

reduced sodium canned chicken broth

2 cup(s)

uncooked instant polenta

½ cup(s)

fresh baby spinach

4 cup(s), lightly packed

table salt

¼ tsp

black pepper

¼ tsp

grated Parmesan cheese

¼ cup(s)

Instructions

  1. Bring broth to boil in medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Whisk in polenta in thin, steady stream. Stir in spinach, salt, and pepper.
  2. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally, until polenta is thickened, about 4 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat and stir in Parmesan. Serve immediately so it stays creamy.
