How to use up leftover polenta 

  • Polenta chips. Coat potato wedges with a little oil, then coat with polenta. Put on a baking sheet and drizzle with more oil.  Bake in a hot oven until cooked and golden, then  grate parmesan over and flash under a hot grill.
  • Polenta canapé. Cook polenta according to the packet instructions, adding a generous knob of butter and plenty of salt. Once cooked, chill in a flat rectangular baking dish in the fridge for a couple of hours. Slice into triangles, lightly oil and season, then fry or griddle over a high heat until golden.  Top with goat’s cheese and olive tapenade.
