Omit the smoked gouda and use parmesan which has trace amounts of lactose, and is typically tolerated in those with dairy intolerance; try a dairy-free cheese; omit cheese
There is no substitute for the polenta
Cook the Polenta Bring 5 cups of water to a boil in a medium-sized sauce pan. Stir in the polenta and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and cook, stirring often until the polenta becomes soft and smooth, about 25 minutes. The longer it cooks, the thicker it will become.
Combine Ingredients & Enjoy Once the polenta is soft, stir in the olive oil and cheese until melted. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Polenta is made from corn, a whole grain. Whole grains provide energy to the body, and can help power you through tiring days.

Polenta can also be purchased in a tube. Cut into ½- inch slices, and pan fry in 1 Tbsp of olive oil. Serve alongside your favorite protein.
