Ingredients

2 cups chicken broth, homemade or low sodium canned

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese, or a combination of Pecorino and Parmesan

Directions

  1. In a medium saucepan over high heat, bring the chicken broth and the water to a boil. While whisking constantly, slowly pour the cornmeal into the hot liquid. Stir in the salt. Lower the heat to cook the mixture at a gentle simmer. Cook, stirring frequently, until the cornmeal is creamy and not grainy, about 30 minutes.
