Perfect Polenta Bites
When your tastebuds are craving everything from cheesy to salty to crispy — polenta bites to the rescue! They add an irresistible crunch factor to any meal yet provide positive nutrition for a healthy gut. Talk about a win-win! Each bite is flavored with nutritional yeast—a plant-based ingredient that mimics the unique smell and flavor profile of real-deal cheese. Not to mention, it’s also abundant in protein and vitamin B12. It’s is a must-try alternative for people trying to minimize or eliminate animal-based cheeses. However, Pecorino Romano and parmesan cheese can still get incorporated in a low-FODMAP diet if preferred over nutritional yeast. Pair these bites alongside your favorite lean protein or toss them in a salad for an added crispy crunch. Get cheesy for real-zy!
