Step 1: Bring the Vegetable Stock and Water to a boil, add Polenta, and stir, continue stirring for five to ten minutes until smooth. Add in salt and parmesan, take off the heat, and stir. Pour into a shallow lined 20 cm x 20 cm tray, allow to set. Cut into three cm square size pieces.
Step 2: Preheat the oven to 200°C.
Step 3: Place Extra Virgin Olive Oil in a medium fry pan 1.5 cm deep. Heat to 180°C. Fry the polenta in batches until each side is golden, then remove from the oil and place onto a kitchen towel. Place in preheated oven and bake for ten minutes.
Step 4: Place the rosemary sprig into the oil and fry for two minutes, remove and set aside. Serve with a drizzle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and the rosemary.
