Preheat oven to 225°C (440°F) as you get the ingredients together.
Whisk the polenta, water and salt together in a medium-sized saucepan and place over medium heat to bring to a boil.
Once boiling, stir constantly for about 15-20 minutes until polenta is thick, sticky and cooked.
Remove polenta from the heat and stir in the nutritional yeast, garlic powder, onion powder and Italian herbs.
Remove polenta from the pot and place onto plastic wrap. Shape into a rectangle about 1/2 inch thick. Wrap the plastic around it and refrigerate until cooled.
Once oven is preheated and polenta has cooled, remove the polenta from the plastic and bake on an oven tray for 25-30 minutes turning every 8-10 minutes until brown and crispy.
