Crispy Polenta Bites with Rosemary and Parmesan
Step 1: Bring the Vegetable Stock and Water to the boil, add Polenta and stir, continue stirring for five to ten minutes until smooth. Add in salt and parmesan, take off the heat and stir. Pour into a shallow lined 20 centimetre x 20 centimetre tray, allow to set. Cut into three centimetre square size pieces.
Step 2: Preheat oven to 200C.
