Vegan Polenta Recipe

Vegan polenta with soy milk

I like to eat a creamy quick homemade vegan polenta for breakfast because I often have cornmeal and the other vegan polenta ingredients on hand. Add as much vegan margarine as you'd like, if you're not worried about your vegan polenta being low-fat, too! Wondering how to make a vegan polenta? Here's how - it's quick and easy, I promise!

Scroll down for more ways to prepare a delicious vegetarian polenta and for ideas on how to use up leftover polenta.


  • 4 cups water or vegetable broth
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 3 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 cup soymilk
  • 1-2 tbsp vegan margarine
  • salt and pepper, to taste


Bring water or vegetable broth to a slow simmer. Stir in cornmeal.

Cook over low heat for 15 minutes, stirring frequently for and scraping the bottom to avoid burning. Cornmeal is done cooking when is smooth and thick.

Stir in soy milk and remaining ingredients before removing from heat.

Serve as is for a creamy polenta dish, or, omit the soy milk, press into a lightly greased loaf pan and chill until firm for a thick polenta loaf.

Enjoy your vegan polenta and scroll down for more vegetarian and vegan polenta recipes.

This is a good recipe. I do love nutritional yeast. Do remember to pour the cornmeal in SLOWLY or it will get lumpy! Also, I would recommend against vanilla soy milk. The sweet with the salty/savory just doesn't work in my book.
