  • 1 18-ounce package of organic prepared Polenta
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • Cracked black pepper
  • Basil sea salt to taste (crush and mix together 1 teaspoon of sea salt with 2 tablespoons of chopped fresh basil)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees and unwrap the roll of polenta. Cut it in half and then cut those in half. Cut into slices that look like fries. Place your fries in a bowl and toss lightly with oil and spices. Lay out fries in a single layer on a baking sheet ans sprinkle with a bit more of the basil sea salt. Bake for 20 minutes and flip half way through so both sides brown. Take out fries and place on a paper towel and pat them dry with another to absorb any excess oil. Serve with marinara and garlic-caper aioli if desired.
