baked polenta fries

A supersize portion of baked polenta fries, from the new cookbook

I created these grain-based fries especially for kids, as a fun, healthy alternative to regular, fat-laden French fries. You can easily whip them up using pantry staples. If you're of the "superparent" persuasion, you can bump up the "wow" factor by using cookie cutters to form the the polenta fries into shapes like animals, stars, hearts, etc. And if you happen to be feeding food-snobbish adults, you can serve these fries with your favorite dipping sauce, instead of the traditional-but-yummy ketchup.

These look great! Also, cooling off right now on my counter are your "Lunch Muffins" with the Winter Pesto from TUV, they smell SOOOO good. My 3yo begging for them now!

P.S. May I post your hot chocolate recipe to my blog? I am addicted to it, it keeps me going when my son doesn't nap :).

Hello! I thought my website might be of interest to you: www.vegerator.com

Vegerator is a vegetarian recipe website that helps you create tasty meals based on what you already have in your home. It’s simple: you type in the food you currently have in your fridge and pantry; then Vegerator presents you recipes that include those ingredients.

I understand this is probably considered spam, so no hard feelings if you delete it! We're new to the web & just trying to get the word out.

I looked for "Baked Polenta Fries" in the cookbook and couldn't find it. Are you referring to the "herby polenta" as one of the recipes?

Sorry if this is an obvious answer
