Fried polenta slices

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.

Sweet shore leave on La Palma

The market hall of Santa Cruz de La Palma is cozy and clear. Many small shops line up around a square courtyard. It’s the usual offer of Mediterranean markets: fruits and vegetables, fish, meat, poultry, spices, flowers and a number of small bars for coffee or a quick glass of wine. But there is a special feature here in St. Cruz: freshly squeezed sugarcane juice – on request also with “shot” – that tastes like more.

Hungarian goulash – straight from the Puszta

From Budapest we made our way to the Hungarian Puszta. If there is a “real” Hungarian goulash somewhere, then in Hortobágyi, a small town in the middle of the Puszta.
