I always use quick-cook polenta. There’s no shame in it and a lot less arm work. You can also eat polenta soft, like porridge. If you want to try it that way, don’t let it sit, just keep stirring until you’re ready to eat it. And you can stir in any melty cheese you like. Fontina and polenta are a classic combo. If you’re on a bland diet, perhaps leave out the peas since they’ll add extra fiber.
