I’m such a huge Masterchef fan and I saw a great idea from SA finalist, Leandri – polenta chips (aka fries).
So I decided to try it out. Tonight we had paleo burgers (no bun!) with these yummy fries:
grill patties (I used venison) and stack with cheese slices, tomato, lettuce and basil. I also used a bit of mayonnaise and whole grain mustard on the patty after grilling.
serve with polenta chips:
cook polenta and pour into a buttered dish to set. Once set, turn out from dish and cut into thick chips. Dust with raw polenta and deep fry in sunflower oil until golden & crisp. Serve with tobasco mayonnaise.
We had real 80’s style retro dessert tonight – I made lemon ‘snow’ puddings from the South African classic ‘Kook en Geniet’ cookbook.
1.5 tbs gelatine
1/4 cup cold water
1 cup boiling water
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup lemon juice and grated rind of half a lemon
2 egg whites
Pour gelatine powder into cold water and dissolve this in the hot water. Add sugar, lemon juice & rind. Let the sugar dissolve and pass through a sieve. Let mixture cool and start to set. Once it has started to get firm, whisk until it has a fluffy and frothy consistency. Whisk egg whites until stiff and fold into gelatine mixture. Place in a mold or glasses and set in fridge.
