Polenta Bites

You probably know polenta as side dish, right? But have you ever tried it as bites? They're perfect as a snack in between meals or alongside meat or fish dishes.


400ml Vegetable Stock

150g Quick cook Polenta

1/2 tsp Dried Thyme

40g Parmesan cheese, finely grated

Salt and Pepper

Olive Oil


Make the polenta and line a 2lb bread loaf tin

Bring the stock to boil in a saucepan, then pour in the polenta and stir while the polenta cooks and thickens

Add the thyme, grated parmesan, and season with salt and pepper

Pour the polenta into the tin so that it’s around 1.5cm deep. Level off and allow to cool for 5 minutes before chilling in the fridge for around an hour

Lift the polenta out of the tin, and cut into even sized cubes

Fry in the air fryer for 5 mins or until nice and crispy
