  • 1 (18 ounce or 510 gram) tube prepared polenta
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Cut your polenta in half, width-wise. Now slice each half lengthwise into 4 slabs of equal thickness, then slice each slab into 4 strips. This should give you 32 fries that are about 3 inches by ½ inch.

  3. Arrange the fries on the baking sheet in a single layer, then drizzle them with the oil. Rub the oil in to evenly coat the fries.

  4. Sprinkle the fries with rosemary, thyme, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.

  5. Bake the fries until they're crispy and just starting to brown around the edges, about 20 minutes.

  6. Let the fries cool for a few minutes, then serve.
