Angu (Cornmeal Mush) Recipe

Recipe Ingredients

1 ingredients:
1 tbsp oil
2 clove garlic, minced (2 tsp)
1 small onion, finely chopped (about 1/4 cu, p)
2 cup cold water (to 3 cups)
1 salt & fresh ground black pepper
1/2 cup fine (stone ground) cornmeal

Recipe Preparation

Servings: 6 to 8 Notes: Angu (pronounced "aing goo") is a sort of
polenta, one of the many cooked starch pastes one finds in Brazil.
For best results, use a fine, stone ground cornmeal.

DIRECTIONS: Heat the oil in a large saucepan. Cook the garlic and
onion over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes or until soft but not
brown. Add 2 cups water and bring to a rapid boil.

Add the cornmeal in a thin stream through your fingers, stirring
vigorously to prevent lumps. The mixture should be the consistency of
choux pastry or soft ice cream. If too thick, make a hole in the angu
with a wooden spoon and stir in a little cold water. Reduce the heat
to low and gently simmer for 3 to 4 minutes. Correct the seasoning
and serve at once.

Note: For a prettier presentation, the angu can be spooned into a
thickly buttered tube pan and unmolded onto a platter. (Picture in
magazine shows that a fluted tube pan was used, and the center of the
unmolded angu was filled with flat leaf parsley- or cilantro?

Food Tips of the Week

Dieting made easy

When deciding on a weight loss program, it is essential to try to restrict your intake of salt, fat and refined carbohydrate.
Some reduced carb diet guidlines:
* Replace sugar with a low carb substitute such as splenda. Most recipes that require sugar can be changed to use splenda instead. It doesn't weigh the same so you will need to experiment a little and it may not work for every recipe, but it does bake up nice most of the time.

The brassica family, Wonder foods that help with Your diet
(eg. Cauliflower, Boiled potatoes, Mizuna and Radishes)
Members of the brassica family are packed with vitamins (eg.folate and vit c), minerals (selenium and potassium, for example), isothiocyanates, antioxidents and indole-3-carbinol.
