  • 4 cups almond milk made with the NutraMilk
  • 1 cup instant polenta
  • 1 cup finely grated parmesan (regular or vegan)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh chives
  • 4 fresh rosemary sprigs
  • Extra polenta, to dust

For cashew butter dip

  • 1/2 cup cashews
  • 1/8 teaspoon Pink Himalayan salt (optional)
  • 1 clove garlic
  • ½-¾ cup water
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice, fresh
  • 1 cup of ketchup

For almond milk

  • 1 cup (150g) almonds
  • 1 quart (946ml) water
  • 1/8 teaspoon Pink Himalayan salt (optional)


  • Start by making fresh almond milk with the NutraMilk:
    • Place almonds in the NutraMilk container.
    • Press Butter cycle, set for 7 minutes.
    • Press Start.
    • Add water and replace lid.
    • Press Mix (do not change the default Mix time)
    • Press Start.
    • Press Dispense, open spigot and fill your container with almond milk.
  • Making cashew butter dip
    • Place cashews and salt in the NutraMilk container.
    • Press Butter cycle, set for 5-6 minutes.
    • Press Start.
    • Open the container lid.
    • If necessary, set for an additional 1-2 minutes for a creamier butter.
    • Add the rest of the ingredients except for ketchup-press butter cycle for 1 minute until smooth and creamy. Add water little by little until you reach desired consistency.
    • Add ketchup and press butter cycle and start, until all is well combined.
    • Refrigerate until ready to serve with polenta chips.
  • Grease a 30 x 20cm slice pan and line with baking paper, allowing the paper to overhang the long sides.
  • Bring almond milk to boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add polenta in a thin, steady stream, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until incorporated. Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring constantly, for 3-5 minutes or until mixture thickens and polenta is soft. Stir in parmesan and chives. Season.

  • Pour polenta mixture into prepared pan and smooth the surface. Set aside for 20 minutes to cool. Cover and place in the fridge for 4 hours or overnight to set.

  • Preheat oven to 200C/180C. Grease a large baking tray and line with baking paper. Turn set polenta onto a board and cut into 24 chips.

  • Dust with extra polenta. Place on prepared tray and spray with oil. Add rosemary. Bake, turning chips halfway through, for 1 hour.

  • Serve with cashew dip. Enjoy!
