These crispy and crunchy polenta fries are a tasty alternative to regular French fries. Perfect for snacking or as a side dish for any meal, best served with Ceres Organic Vegan Mayo. 


  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 cups water
  • 1½ cups Ceres Organics Polenta, Coarse
  • 1 teaspoon natural sea salt (ground)
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese (grated)
  • ¼ cup Ceres Organics Olive Oil, Extra Virgin Cold-Pressed


  1. In a large saucepan, under medium heat, bring milk and water to the boil. Slowly add polenta, stirring constantly. Season with salt and turn down heat to a simmer. Continue stirring until the polenta thickens. Add in the cheese.
  2. Remove from heat and spread onto a baking sheet, about ½ an inch thick. Chill in the fridge for at least an hour to set, or overnight.
  3. Preheat oven to 230°C. Cut set polenta into wide “fry” shapes, then rub with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt. Bake for 20 minutes, until golden and crispy, turning halfway through.
