Easy Vegan Polenta Butter - Oil, Nut, Dairy & Gluten Free
Recipe type: Condiment
Cuisine: American
Homemade creamy vegan polenta butter. Oil-free, dairy-free, nut-free, soy-free and gluten-free. Quick and easy only 4 ingredients.
  • ½ cup polenta
  • 2 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt, optional but recommended
  • 1 or 2 teaspoon lemon juice (depending on your taste)
  1. Grind polenta on high in a high-speed blender or coffee grinder. Grind/blend into a fine powder.
  2. In a cool saucepan add ground polenta
  3. With a whisk slowly add cold water to the ground polenta. Stir until all lumps are gone.
  4. Bring saucepan to a boil. Once ingredients start to boil reduce heat to low. Continue to whisk for 5 minutes. Be careful while stirring, as the polenta will bubble up while cooking.
  5. Remove pan from the heat after cooking for 5 minutes.
  6. Add salt, lemon and polenta mixture in a high-speed blender. Blend on high until smooth. Be careful as ingredients will be hot.
  7. Let cool and refrigerate.
Add 1 or 2 teaspoons of lemon depending on your taste. The high-speed blender grinds the polenta a lot finer than the coffee grinder. If you have both I would use the high-speed blender. While stirring check the whisk if polenta starts to stick, turn the heat down. On my Blendtec for high-speed, I increase the speed up to 10
