  • In a medium pot over medium heat, add 10 ml of olive oil. Add the finely diced onions and cook until they are golden brown.
  • In a separate pot, bring the 2 cups of water to a boil.
  • Add the instant polenta to the onions and stir well. Toast the polenta with the onions for 1 minute. Add 20 g of the chopped sun-dried tomatoes and the boiling water.
  • Cook the polenta for about 3 to 5 minutes and season with salt and cracked black pepper. While the polenta is cooking, line a baking pan with baking paper and set aside.
  • Once the polenta is cooked, pour it into the prepared baking pan and flatten the top using the back of a measuring cup. Place the baking pan into the refrigerator for 1 hour.
  • Refrigerating the cooked polenta will seize all the starches and will allow you to cut it into tikkis of any shape.
  • Once the polenta is completely cold and set, cut it into your desired shapes.
  • In a non-stick pan over medium heat, add 10 ml of olive oil. Fry the Polenta tikkis in the oil until they are crispy and golden brown.
  • Repeat this process with all of the tikkis and transfer them to a plate lined with kitchen paper to drain off the excess oil.
  • To serve, top the polenta tikkis with a dollop of the Vegan Basil Pesto and the remaining chopped sun-dried tomatoes.
