    This is a really good recipe. Only difference is that we like ours firm so we put it in the oven to bake. YUM! - 12/29/09

    Tasty and a nice change up from the tasteless fat-free packaged polenta. It's easily made vegan by using unsweetened soy milk, vegetable broth and soy cheese. (I used real cheese as I'm not vegan!) - 8/9/07
