Crispy Coated Polenta Baked Poatoes
If you love crispy baked potatoes to accompany your roast or just because, try coating them in polenta rather than butter as a healthy alternative. I didn't use any butter whatsoever and the result was equally as good! Your heart will thank you for it. Don't tell hubby 😉
Just in case you are wondering, polenta is made from ground corn and is used in a wide variety of dishes. Originally part of a staple diet in Italy, polenta is now commonly used and perfect for both vegetarians and vegans.
You can normally find polenta at your local supermarket. I purchased mine at Coles in the baking section. It may also be stocked in the health food section, or purchased at your local fruit market.
Simply chop your potatoes in quarters (or smaller) depending on size. Drizzle olive oil, roughly coat with polenta. Season with salt, pepper or tumeric powder (to taste). Pop into oven until golden brown.
Within 30 minutes you get crispy, healthy hot potatoes that even the kids will love!
