Polenta Cakes are a great vegan and gluten-free base for sliced avocado and a poached egg! Equally delicious with your favourite tomato sauce!


  • 1 cup polenta
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 1 pinch mixed herbs
  • 1 tbsp coconut (or avocado oil)


  1. Bring the water to the boil
  2. Add the polenta and reduce heat
  3. Cook slowly for around 5 minutes
  4. Stir occasionally until the mixture is very thick
  5. Heat the oil in a separate frying pan
  6. Take 1 cake-worth of mixture and place on the heated oil and fry for 3 minutes on each side until golden brown (I use a chef’s stainless steel ring to get the depth and circle shape for my cakes)


This is a great gluten free recipe. I love this topped with sliced avocado and a poached egg!

Try it with Red Snapper with Basil Sauce or Eggplant & Tomato Saunce
