Hello polenta my ol’ friend …. Quick and easy and oh so pretty….
Hello polenta ol’ friend how you make me smile… As always a quick and easy dish!
A salad of rocket, sundried tomatoes and my creamy garlic, mint and pea dressing wrapped around a yummy sweet chilli polenta burger filled with pickled beetroot, raw sugar snap peas, a baked portobello mushroom smothered in yummy melted violife cheese and my pepper relish. Salivating…. Polenta: Boil water Add a veg stock cube and a splash of sweet chilli Add polenta Ratio 3:1 water to polenta Bring back to boil. Reduce and stir until it forms a nice thick paste Season to your liking I half filled two metal rings until they set to form my burger bun and hey presto….

Damson in disguise!!!! The best sweet and sour dipping sauce you will ever taste
I make this yummy dipping sauce quite often but this time it was a little different as it was for a client for her event so I was excited for all their guests to try it but also apprehensive that it might just be me who thought it was amazing….Thankfully it got a big thumbs up.. yippee and they happily smothered it all over the stuffed rice and seitan rolls.
This sauce is great for marinating too! It tastes like a mixture of Christmas and sitting in a Chinese restaurant and who doesn’t love both these things.
Pop the ingredients below into a pot and bring to a boil, reduce, blend and leave for a few hours to let the flavours merge. This had three hours just relaxing taking in the kitchen views and it made all the difference. This is very much a flavour to your liking sauce so interpret to suit yourself. (Personally I am a chilli addict so would normally spice this baby up)
2 cups of damsons or plums work well too.
Generous squeeze of agave syrup
Splash of apple cider vinegar
Teaspoon of nutmeg, chinese 5 spice, cinnamon, garlic powder (a cross over of cinnamon here as it’s in 5 spice too but I think it’s the key to the warmth here yum)
A tablespoon of ginger paste
A nice pour of soy sauce
Pinch of salt and pepper
