    Polenta mixture

    5. When it has reached a rolling boil, slowly add polenta through the lid, speed 4 and mix for 20 seconds.

    7. Pour the mixture evenly into the prepared pans and smooth the surface. Cover with non stick paper.

    8. Place mixture into the fridge to set for at least 4 hours or overnight.

    9. Turn out Polenta onto a clean work surface. Using a sharp knife, trim the edges slightly for a nice clean finish.

    12. Bake in a preheated 200c oven ( or airfryer), for 20-25 minutes. They will be crunchy and golden.

    13. Serve with a side salad and sauce of your choice (sweet chilli is nice). I served with creamed silverbeet and tomato sauce.







Accessories you need



This makes a large amount but it can easily be halved.

8 serves is based on a meal size. Obviously it would serve more if used as a side dish.

However, I like to make the full amount, then cut it into serving size blocks and freeze. Thaw and cut into strips for baking.

It can be a complete meal, when served with a nice salad and sauce or veggies or an egg and bacon ( non Vegetarian).

    sorty this didn't work for you. I've made this so many times without a problem. Maybe different brands of polenta work differently..?

    Followed all the instructions, not sure why but it wouldn't become hard enough it fridge so it can be cut. Left it for nearly 24 hours still gluggy. Had to put it in the freezer for hours then had to wait for it to defrost slightly so it can be cut. Whilst in the oven the mixture spread so the pieces did not stay intact. Had to wait for it to cook until it was crunchy enough to cut up then cook further.

    They tasted ok but not great but everyone is different.
