Easy Vegan Olive Polenta Bites

My husband and I went to this amazing wedding recently and the bride was so kind as to include vegan options at her wedding for us! This is a rare treat, we don’t ever expect people to order stuff special to us, but so very thoughtful when they do! The wedding is what inspired these tasty vegan olive polenta bites. This was similar to the vegan appetizer that was floating around that night.

Unfortunately, my husband and I only got one of these before they were gone.

Everyone was loving them.

The mild taste of the polenta and strong olive flavor pairs perfectly together.

These are a quick and easy snack to whip up. I always buy polenta pre-made.

It’s just one less step, the majority of stores should have it premade. Having the polenta premade is as easy as taking the package off and cutting into slices, baking it in the oven and it’s ready for some olive topping!

The olive topping requires some chopping. I wouldn’t throw it in a food processor because I think it would get so fine that it wouldn’t look aesthetically pleasing.

It doesn’t take too long to chop up all up.

What do you need to make this fun vegan olive polenta bites appetizer?

  • garlic
  • kalamata olives
  • black olives
  • capers
  • parsley, fresh
  • lemon juice
  • olive oil
  • pepper
  • polenta

How do you make it?

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a cookie sheet and set aside.

Take a cutting board and add both your olives, capers, and parsley, cut into very small pieces. This doesn’t take much time and it will look a lot better than throwing it in a food processor.

Take a small bowl and add your lemon juice, oil, pepper, minced and minced garlic, stir.

Now add the chopped up ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir. Set aside.

Take your roll of polenta and cut it into desired shapes. I cut mine into about half an inch circles and then cut the circles into fours.

Place evenly on the cookie sheet and bake for 15 minutes, flip and then bake another 10-15 minutes.

Take the cooled polenta pieces and place a 1/2 tsp- 1 tsp depending on the size of your polenta bites of the olive mixture on top and serve.

The olive mixture can be made up the day before and placed in the fridge.
