Polenta jazzed up with a little cheese makes good side dish that goes well with stewed meats or roasted vegetables.

Sun Oven Polenta with Blue Cheese


7 cups water

2 teaspoons salt

1 2/3 cups polenta

1 tablespoon butter

4 ounces blue cheese (preferably soft Gorgonzola), crumbled

1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese


Set Global Sun Oven out to preheat.

Bring the water to boil in a dark, light-weight, lidded pot. Add the salt. Add the polenta in a very thin stream, keeping the water boiling and stirring with a whisk the entire time. When you have put in all the polenta, stir with a long-handled wooden spoon for 2 minutes, cover the pot and place in Sun Oven. Cook until all the water has been absorbed, 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Remove pot from Sun Oven and stir in butter and cheeses.

Serve immediately.
