Garlicy Polenta Scramble with Basil & Cranberries

This garlicy Polenta acts as a new twist on an old Italian favourite. Makes a great side dish! (Vegan and Gluten Free!)


  • 1 package of Aurora Garlic and Basil Polenta 
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup fresh chopped basil
  • 2-3 cloves crushed garlic
  • 1/2 chopped onion
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a hot skillet, sautee onions and garlic in olive oil
  2. Once onions are soft, add your Polenta (slicing it first and gradually scrambling it in the pan)
  3. Add fresh basil, cranberries, and salt & pepper and continue to scramble your mixture. A hot skillet ensures a nice crispy texture, but be sure to keep your Polenta moving as it has a tendency to stick.

Once your mixture has darkened in colour and has formed a nice scramble, it’s ready to serve!
