I don’t know how I came up with this idea. It just popped into my head! I was thinking about polenta and how to make this dish a little bit more sophisticated and the result were these delicious, easy to make polenta muffins. These polenta muffins are great served as party appetizers and don’t require a lot of cooking. I think you can use vegan cheese if you want. Unfortunately, the only “veg cheese” here is tofu. I wish I could find more vegan goodies in stores… :(

So, what do you think about these polenta muffins? Try them and let me know how they turned out :)

Polenta Muffins with Green Peas and Teleme Cheese

These salty polenta muffins with green peas stuffing are perfect as a party appetizer and are very easy to make.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup organic cornmeal
  • 1 cup grated teleme cheese
  • 8 tbsps frozen or fresh green peas (1 tbsp per muffin)
  • one medium onion, chopped
  • a bunch of parsley
  • a bunch of green onion or ramps (I used ramps)
  • sea salt and ground pepper to taste
  • sweet paprika
  • 1-2 mushrooms, sliced (optional for garnish)

Instructions

  1. Make polenta. Here’s how: Traditional Romanian Polenta, but use 3/4 cup cornmeal.
  2. When ready, add chopped parsley, green onion/ramps, 3/4 cup grated teleme cheese.
  3. Grease the muffin tins and pour polenta into them. Place in fridge. We want them to cool, so the polenta will become stiff.
  4. Steam the green peas.
  5. In a small skillet, heat very little olive oil (1/2 tbsp) and add chopped onion. Saute until golden. Add steamed green peas, salt and pepper. Set aside.
  6. Remove polenta muffins from the muffin tins. Mace a hole in each muffin. Add sauteed green peas and onion. About 1 tbsp per muffin.
  7. Sprinkle some sweet paprika on top and the remaining grated teleme cheese.
  8. Place on an oven tray and reheat the muffins. They’re best served warm with melted cheese on top.
  9. _Optional: Garnish with grilled mushroom slices, or red bell pepper, tomatoes slices.. anything you want :) _

Polenta Muffins with Green Peas and Teleme Cheese

Nu stiu cum de mi-a venit ideea asta. Pur si simplu ma gandeam la mamaliga (pe care o ador!) si m-am gandit de ce sa nu incerc o altfel de reteta, in afara de cea clasica pe care toata lumea o cunoaste. Asa au iesit aceste micute briose de mamaliga cu branza si mazare verde. Mie mi-au placut la nebunie! Briosele de mamaliga cu branza merg de minune servite ca aperitiv la petreceri si se fac si super rapid!

Sper sa va placa si voua acest aperitiv cu mamaliga, mazare verde si branza telemea. :)

Aperitiv cu mamaliga si mazare verde

Ingrediente pentru 8 briose de mamaliga (poate chiar mai multe): 

  • 3/4 cana malai
  • 1 cana telemea rasa
  • 8 Linguri de mazare verde, congelata sau proaspata (1Lg per bucata)
  • o ceapa mica, maruntita
  • o legatura de patrunjel
  • o legatura de ceapa verde sau leurda
  • sare de mare si piper, dupa gust
  • boia dulce
  • 1-2 ciuperci feliate (optional – pentru decorat – se pot folosi ardei grasi, capia, rosii etc.)

Aperitiv cu mamaliga branza si mazare

Instructiuni:

  1. Prepara mamaliguta urmarind reteta de aici: Mamaliguta traditionala romaneasca, insa se folosesc doar 3 patrimi din cana cu malai.
  2. Cand mamaliguta e gata, adauga patrunjelul, ceapa verde si telemeaua rasa.
  3. Unge o tava de briose si pune mamaliga fierbinte in forme. Bag-o la frigider ca sa se raceasca. Nu trebuie sa fie complet reci, ci doar cat sa se inchege bine mamaliga si sa iasa usor din forme.
  4. Mazarea verde se soteaza sau se baga la cuptorul cu aburi.
  5. Intr-o tigaie mica adauga 1/2 Lg ulei de masline si soteaza ceapa pana cand devine aurie. Adauga mazarea facuta la aburi, sare, piper si lasa-le deoparte.
  6. Scoate mamaliguta din forme si scobeste aproximativ o lingurita de compozitie din mijlocul fiecarei “briose”. Uumple cu amestecul de mazare verde si ceapa. Aprox. 1 Lg in fiecare briosa.
  7. Presara boia dulce si telemea rasa. De preferat este sa se mai bage 10 minute la cuptor pentru a le servi calde.
  8. Se pot decora cu ce doresti: ciuperci, ardei gras, etc.

  1. Hi,

    FYI,

    the english translation for “branza telemea” is Feta Cheese no Teleme…

    otherwise, a very cute website…
    Good job..
