Monday, We Went Flash-Parmesan Polenta Chips

Last night I posted about my marvellous meal planning and polenta chips being part of tonights dinner. I thought I would share what I learnt and what I will do next time. For this first batch I decided to start with a healthy recipe from the March 2015 edition of NZ Healthy Food Guide. I figured as I always tweak things if we started at a healthy base I could tweak away and know they came from a good place.

This NZ HFG recipe does not contain stock and didn’t have enough salt for our liking. I thought the parmesan cheese might make up for this but this wasn’t to be. I actually only made 2/3 of the recipe below and I would say that would easily be enough for 4.

I will make them again and seek other recipes, we enjoyed having something different with our piece of steak and they did go rather nice and crusty. That word just doesn’t sound right, but that is what they were.
