nutritional information for polenta fries with lemon and goats cheese

  • Truffle oil is quite pungent, so if you don’t like the flavour use olive oil.
  • The cheeses used in this dish make it a cows milk free, creamy snack. You could use blue cheese in the cheese sauce if you like as this would marry well with the truffle oil.
  • Polenta is a corn meal. If you are intolerant to corn you could use buckwheat polenta from health food stores.
