Oven Baked Creamy Polenta Recipe

Oven Baked Creamy Polenta Recipe

One of our CSA members, Amanda, used our Organic Heirloom Corn Meal in a recipe from this website and she loved it so much she asked us to pass it on. Amanda adapted it by using chipotle beef broth from Kettle & Fire and loved it! Recipes like this are very flexible. You can use butter or coconut oil, vegetable or beef broth, etc.
