Why always dumplings, spaetzle or potatoes? Polenta slices are an ideal accompaniment to all stews and all dishes with a good sauce. In the past, polenta was considered “poor people” food. Today it finds its way into our kitchen. OK then!

Fried polenta slices

The corn meal with the name “Polenta” is incredibly versatile and was already popular with the ancient Romans – can only be good 😉  It can be processed into dumplings, porridge, slices or fillings. Today I’m going to show you how to make fried polenta slices.

I use instant polenta. It is pre-cooked and therefore only needs about 5 minutes to cook. That is practical. Check the package insert to see how long the cooking time is for the respective product. It is also good to know that the polenta slices can be easily frozen. Defrost, fry in butter until golden brown, enjoy.

Fried polenta slices

(4 servings)

600 ml vegetable broth*
3 TS butter
bring to the boil together
140 g polenta
drizzle into the simmering broth and simmer for 5 minutes (or according to packaging instruction) (note: the mixture splashes!)
season the polenta with salt and pepper, spread in a greased baking dish (appr. 35 X 20 cm), let cool down, cut into strips or cut out thaler
3 TS butter
fry the polenta slices until golden brown

* My homemade vegetable extract is excellent here. This gives the polenta slices a wonderful vegetable flavor.

Plaice Fillet with Lettuce and Peach

Sesame oil, or more precisely roasted sesame oil, makes this simple green salad taste so special. In combination with the sweetness of the peach and the fresh herbs this salad matches perfectly to the crunchy fried plaice. A light and fast summer meal.

Vanilla Quince

Quinces are childhood memory for me. Grew up on the North Sea every summer we visited our grandparents in the Odenwald, a German low mountain range. In their (kitchen) garden they grew a quince tree in addition to many other fruit trees. Plums, apples, pears, we also had in our garden at home, but I had never seen quinces in North Germany. I thought they were unique in my grandparents‘ garden. Grandma Anna’s quince jelly was my favourite!
