Fun & Healthy Snack: Polenta Chips

Polenta chips are great for snacking, and also work well as a garnish for any dish (I like to serve them with fish, makes for a nice play on textures).

I like simple flavors with my polenta chips, just a drizzle of olive oil and sprinkle of salt (or you can leave out the oil altogether for an even healthier chip). You can, however, use lots of flavors: Rosemary, thyme, chives, sage, garlic, onion...you get the idea.

Note: These "chips" get crispy on the outside and stay soft and creamy of the inside if you eat them fresh out of the oven; they're still yummy later, but don't keep their crunch very long.

Ingredients:

1 polenta roll
olive oil
sea salt

Directions:
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Wet a sharp knife and slice polenta into thin rounds (not too thin or it will break); you may need to re-wet the knife as you cut.
  3. Lay polenta on a greased cookie sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Bake in the oven until 25-30 minutes, flipping halfway through to make sure the chips crisp up on both sides.
The cost:
polenta: 1.99
other ingredients: negligible

Grand total: 1.99; serves 4-6, store in an airtight container
