Creamy Garlic-Parmesan Polenta

Yields 4 servings


4 cups filtered water

1/2 tsp. Vitacost Himalayan Fine Pink Salt

1/2 cup vegan Parmesan cheese

1/2 tsp. garlic, minced

1/4 tsp. ground black pepper

1 cup Bob’s Red Mill Polenta

1/8 cup nutritional yeast

2 Tbsp. vegan butter

Parsley for garnish, chopped


  1. In a pot on medium-high heat, bring the water and salt to a boil. Add the polenta while continuously whisking to prevent lumps from forming. Once polenta has thickened, roughly 2 minutes, reduce heat to low.
  2. Cook for 10 to 14 minutes, stirring occasionally being careful to not get splattered on. Once you are finished cooking the polenta, add the butter, nutritional yeast, Parmesan, pepper and more salt to taste.
  3. Serve topped with roasted brocoletti.


Chef’s tip: If polenta becomes too thick, you can stir in a splash of vegetable broth or oat milk for a more creamy approach.
