Some time back I had dinner at a Mexican restaurant and my sister ordered polenta chips for the table to share. Oh. My. Goodness! They were divine!
I was determined to return post-haste, order a bowl to myself, and devour, margarita in hand. I was dreaming.
So last weekend I decided to have a go at making my own polenta chips. There are lots of recipes out there, some healthy, others not so. I decided to go with one of the healthiest and tastiest looking ones.
They look pretty tasty, hey?
To go with these crunchy little morsels, I made some guacamole. I also made this healthier by mixing the avocado with no-fat natural yoghurt, lemon and chilli.
These were a winner with the whole family. It took a little prep, but it was well worth the effort.
By far our favourite chips of the bunch were the ones that were ‘overcooked’ and really crispy. Next time I think I might cut the polenta into quite thin chips and cook them a tad longer. I don’t think it will be too long before I get the chance to try out this method 😉
