If you are looking for a side dish that takes minimal effort, then baked garlic polenta fries are for you. You just put them in the oven and wait for them to get all crispy, golden brown and delicious.
Polenta is a fairly new ingredient in our house, but ever since Dave decided to be “adventurous” and order some polenta fries when we went to Jamie’s Italian, he has been hooked on it and will always prefer to have these over traditional potato fries. They don’t take any more effort to make and they get so much crispier and have much more flavour than potatoes.
What To Serve with Polenta Fries
Have you tried my homemade healthier ketchup recipe? Much less sugar and salt and generally not full of junk. These polenta fries are perfect dipped in it.
