Top Tips

  • Alternatively, you can slice the pre-prepared polenta into any shape of your choosing before baking. Sometimes I slice it into cubes to make Polenta Croutons!
  • Coconut and avocado oil work well as an alternative to olive oil, if preferred.
  • The combo of black pepper & garlic make such a divine combo, but you can certainly toss the polenta with any spices of your choosing before baking!
  • These fries are quite neutral in flavor, versatile and accommodate a variety entrees and condiments. I highly recommend experimentation!
  • These store well in airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week. Reheat in a 400 degree oven until warmed throughout.

  1. Hi! I’d love to make this but would be making my own polenta – any thoughts on that? Any direction? My upstairs neighbour is vegan and I’m gluten free (celiac). We’re so happy to find someone else with food/diet requirements and we’re challenging each other with delicious recipes. Will be pleased to review once enjoyed.

    1. Hi! Thanks for stopping by. 🙂 Yes, you can most certainly do that! You would need to cook around 1 cup of dry polenta according to package instructions, then you will pour it into a square baking pan and pop it into the fridge for about 1 hour or until the polenta has solidified considerably. Then you can cut it into fries and make according to the recipe instructions here. I hope this helps and I hope you enjoy!
