Instant Pot Polenta is easy to cook in your electric pressure cooker. Creamy and delicious pressure cooker polenta in less time and less stirring than on the stove!
Press the Sauté (normal, medium heat) button on the Instant Pot.
Add the water, butter, and salt. Bring to a simmer.
Whisk in the polenta, and put the lid on the pot. Set the steam release knob to the Sealing position.
Cancel the Sauté function (usually by pressing the Keep Warm/Cancel button).
Press the Manual (or Pressure Cook) button, and then the + or - button to select 7 minutes (4 minutes for the quick cooking variety). When cook cycle ends, turn off the pressure cooker and let the pot naturally release the pressure for 10 minutes. Then manually release the remaining pressure.
When the pin in the lid drops, open the lid and stir the polenta well, scraping up any that may have stuck to the bottom of the pot (I have the ceramic coated Instant Pot liner that is non-stick. It is perfect for this).
Serve with your favorite sauce or toppings.
After you have opened up the pot when polenta is done cooking, stir it well and add the parmesan cheese. Stir to incorporate.
Stir in the milk.
Taste and adjust salt to if needed.
After you have opened up the pot when polenta is done cooking, stir it well and add the feta cheese. Stir to incorporate.
Stir in the milk, sun dried tomatoes, and the basil.
Taste, and adjust salt if needed.
