These vegan polenta fries are brushed with a parmesan butter and truffle salt. They are packed with flavor, and so good!



For the Fries:

2 cups vegetable broth

1 cup corn mill or grits

1/2 cup almond milk or plant-milk of choice

1/4 vegan or regular parmesan cheese

1 garlic clove, pressed

1 tsp sea salt

1/2 tsp black pepper

2 tbsp. fresh thyme

For the Parmesean Butter:

2 tbsp. melted vegan or regular butter

2 tbsp. Chosen Foods Avocado Oil

3 tbsp. vegan or regular parmesan cheese

3 tbsp. fresh thyme

1 tbsp. oregano

dash of pepper

For the Aioli:

1/4 cup Chosen Foods Avocado Mayo

2 tbsp. lemon

zest of 1 large lemon

1 1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp black pepper


1/2 white truffle salt


To make the polenta fries, bring the vegetable broth to a boil.  Stir/whisk in the corn mill or grits.  To the pot, add the plant milk of choice, parmesan cheese, salt + pepper and thyme. Cook and whisk occasionally for 5 minutes or until soft in texture.  Turn the heat off, place the lid on the pot and set for 5 minutes.

Line a 9″X9″ or 13″ baking sheet with parchment, pour the polenta in and press into the pan until flat and smooth. Place in the freezer for 30 minutes or in the fridge for at least 2 hours (up to 24 hours).

Preheat the oven to 450F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

Remove the polenta from the fridge or freezer.  Slice the polenta in half (length-wise) then slice into fries around 1/4 inch thick.

Place the fries onto the parchment-lined baking dish, leaving the room and spray with Chosen Foods Avocado Oil. Cook for 15 minutes on each side or until perfectly golden. *

While the fries cook, prepare the aioli by adding all the ingredients into a small bowl.

Flip the fries.

Prepare the parmesan butter mixture by adding all the ingredients to a small pot, simmer on low for 4-5 minutes.

Once the fries are cooked, remove them from the oven, generously brush them with the parmesan butter.  Dust them with white truffle salt and enjoy with your homemade aioli.


If you try to flip the fries are they are still too frail, cook them a bit longer till more firm and easy to flip.

Have fun with the spices and herbs in this recipe, you can truly make it however you want!
