  2. serves four - six 2 1/2 cups vegetable stock (375 ml)

  3. 1/2 cup black bean stock (125 ml)

  4. 1 cup polenta (250 ml)

  5. frozen stick of butter - you will use around 1gm.

  6. Pour the liquids into a pot and bring to a rapid boil. Slowly

  7. pour in the polenta making sure the grains stay separate. The boiling

  8. action should do this nicely but just in case, be prepared to stir.

  9. Stir the mixture almost continuously for around 30 minutes until

  10. the polenta is "firm" and "comes away from the sides of the pot" or until you're tired of stirring (that's my technique.)

  11. Pour the polenta into a loaf pan. The polenta should be barely

  12. pourable because of its thickness. Refrigerate in order to firm it

  13. up.

  14. When you are ready to serve, heat up a griddle on a medium flame.

  15. Swipe the griddle with the frozen bar of butter. This will impart a

  16. really tiny amount of butter but just enough to provide lubrication

  17. and taste. Slice the polenta into eight slices and grill a around

  18. five minutes on each side until browned.

  19. Serve two each with the Thai-style curry sauce or a simple mushroom

  20. sauce.
