Well hello! Fancy something tasty tonight? How about some Crispy Air-fried Vegan Polenta Chips?
You do watch Netflix while having dinner right?
Beside, these stuff are healthy. They’re made of corn. Full of fibre, beta-carotene and carbs. We love carbs.
They’re very easy to make and once you learn how make them, I guarantee you will be making them again, and again..
Most polenta chips uses parmesan and so for this vegan version I use my vegan parmesan, which you can replace with nutritional yeast.
I love making this using an air fryer. I use Philips Air Fryer which I can’t recommend enough. It’s easy to use and makes everything crispy and crunchy with very little oil. That said, you can also use the oven. In face, until I bought an air fryer, I’ve been using the oven to make this. The good thing with oven is that it’s has more space so you can cook more chips than the oven, but it also takes about twice as long. With the air fryer it cooks really quickly but I would need to make two batches. At the end it’s the same, but I personally like using the air fryer more because I don’t have to flip the chips halfway through, which I need to do with the oven.
Crispy, delicious, vegan polenta chips. Give it a go!
Air Fried Vegan Polenta Chips (or you can use the oven)
- Coconut oil spray I use Cocolife - you can use code "passionatelykeren" to get 15% off your online order
- 2 cups vegetable stock or 1 stock cube and 2 cups of water
- 250 g polenta flour
- 1/3 cup
- vegan parmesan
- or nutritional yeast
- Sea salt
- Optional: 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh rosemary
Spray a baking pan with oil spray and set aside.
Heat stock saucepan over medium-high heat and bring to boil. Gradually add the polenta in a thin steady stream, stirring constantly until all the polenta is incorporated into the stock.
Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring constantly for 2 minutes or until mixture thickens. Remove from heat and stir in the vegan parmesan or nutritional yeast.
Pour the polenta onto the prepared pan and use the back of a large spoon to smooth the surface. Cover with non-stick baking paper and set aside to cool, then place in the fridge for four hours or overnight to set.
Turn polenta onto chopping board. Cut lengthways into 2cm strips then each strip into fingers (about 6-8 cm).
Arrange polenta pieces on the air fryer basket with space in between each pieces, spray with coconut oil. Bake at 200C for 20-25 minutes. Alternately you can use the oven.
To cook polenta chips in the oven, arrange strips on an oiled baking pan, bake for 20 minutes at 190C and then turn the chips around and bake for a further 20 minutes.
Sprinkle with rosemary is using and season with sea salt. Serve immediately.
