Happy Meatless Monday guys! The recipe of the day is one that I’ve been meaning to make for a long time now and finally that day has come – Spicy Polenta Chips with Feta Cheese. Really good stuff and really filling too! If you, like me, love corn and polenta, you’d love this simple but delicious recipe! For some reason, I don’t use that much polenta in my cooking which I need to change. Polenta is so tasty and I specifically like the corn flavour. And corn plus cheese equals heaven. 🙂
These polenta chips are super easy to make – I basically cooked the polenta, let it to cool down and then just cut in thin pieces a.k.a. chips. 🙂 I had my polenta chips with feta cheese on top but if you’d like to indulge a bit and treat yourself add some Parmesan when cooking the polenta. It’ll become really thick and creamy and amazingly delicious.
Here’s what you need to make these Spicy Polenta Chips.
- 200g/7oz polenta
- 2tbsp butter
- 1 garlic clove, crushed
- 150g/5oz feta cheese
- hot sauce
- fresh coriander, chopped
- salt and pepper
- To prepare the polenta – just follow the instructions on the back of the back(usually you have to bring a pot with water to the boil and to add slowly the polenta)
- Heat a pan with the butter and gently sweat the garlic. Add to the polenta and stir well. Season the polenta, pour in a baking tray and leave on a side to settle.
- Cut into thin pieces, add some hot sauce(your choice), crumble the feta cheese on top and sprinkle the fresh coriander.
Tip: Why not try adding some grated Parmesan cheese into the polenta for even more cheesy goodness! And may be some crispy bacon! 🙂
