Polenta Chips

Polenta

  • 1 cup finely ground polenta
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • Handful of chopped spinach

Add water and salt to a pan and bring to boil.  Add spinach and slowly add polenta to boiling water and whisk constantly until all polenta is stirred in and there are no lumps.

Reduce heat and simmer, keep whisking polenta for about 5 minutes till is starts to thicken.  The polenta mixture should still be slightly loose.  Cover and cook on a low heat for 30 minutes, whisking every 5 to 6 minutes. When polenta is too thick to whisk, stir with a wooden spoon.  Polenta is done when texture is creamy and the individual grains are tender.

Turn off heat and transfer to a dish to cool
When cool slice into chips, coat with olive oil and bake in oven for 25 mins at 200c
Sprinkle with rosemary and Serve with the Mayo Dip below or your favorite dip.
