  • 1 tsp - fresh sage, minced (you can also use other savoury herbs like thyme or oregano)

How to Make Rosemary Polenta Spiked With Miso

  • Heat the oil in a saucepan. Add the onion and saute for about 3-4 minutes until translucent.
  • Add the rosemary and some black pepper. Stir well. Add the 3 cups of water and bring to a boil.
  • Now add the cornmeal mixed in water, using a whisk to stir it in rapidly so that you don't get any lumps.
  • Continue to cook for another 25 minutes, stirring with a wooden ladle, until the polenta starts to pull from the sides of the pan. Turn off the heat.
  • Add the miso (which is salty) and check if you need any salt. If yes, add some and stir it in quickly before the polenta starts to set.
  • Wait until the polenta is quite firm (about 10-15 minutes) before serving.
