IBS Friendly Polenta Parmesan Bites

IBS-Friendly Polenta Parmesan Bites

Here’s an IBS-friendly recipe that anyone can enjoy! I never used to like polenta but I was determined to find a way to make it taste good for my palate. It took a number of trials and errors to get the perfect recipe, but I think I got it right this time. It’s great as an Italian-style appetizer at a party or just a plain old snack at home. It is definitely nice on the stomach and I think many IBS sufferers can enjoy this recipe without any worries of triggering a symptom.
