Makes 9. Can be doubled.

Can be made a short time ahead and reheated and crisped for serving. Can also be frozen.

 

For variation, replace the spices and chilies with 1 tbsp chopped rosemary, and the cheddar with kashkaval / provolone / etc.

 

 

200g (=200ml) sour cream, apx 20% fat

60g good Cheddar cheese, grated

2 jalapenos (or other chillies), deseeded and chopped. You can also char them first like when making salsa

1 small spring onion, sliced finely

......

50g cornmeal

140g white flour, pastry flour if available

1 tsp toasted coriander seeds, ground

1/2 tsp toasted cumin, ground

Pepper

Optional: large pinch MSG

2 tsp sugar

1 tsp salt

3 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp baking soda

 

 

 

 

Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl.

 

Mix remaining ingredients in a second bowl.

 

Dust your working surface.

 

Heat oven to 230 degree celsius.

 

Fold wet mixture into dry one into the dry one, pressing and folding bottom up just until it forms a few crumbly dough chunks with some dry flour at the bottom.

 

Remove the mixture onto the dusted working surface.

 

Dust from above.

 

Press together to form a rough rectangle shape.

 

Fold the dough in half on top of itself.

 

Dust and press to flatten into a rough square shape, apx 3 cm (a bit more than an inch) tall.

 

Cut into 9 pieces (3 by 3 grid). Use a bench scraper or a large knife.

 

Place spaced on a baking try with parchment paper.

 

Bake for 13-16 minutes until lightly browned and baked through.

 

Remove from the try and cool on a baking try. 

 

You can serve it immediately, but I much prefer to let it chill for 10 minutes and then bake 5 minutes more until brown and crisp.

      Sorta Secret Aardvark Sauce (Habenero Hot Sauce)
      I thought I'd submit my recipe which is a clone of a locally available sauce here in Portland OR called Secret Aardvark Sauce.
      Sorta Secret Aardvark Sauce
      1 – 14.5 oz can of diced tomatoes or roasted tomatoes chopped - include the juice
      1 – 14.5 oz of rice wine vinegar. Use the now empty tomato can to measure
      1-1/2 cups of peeled and grated carrots (packed into the measuring cup)
      1 cup of finely diced white onion
      1/4 cup of yellow mustard
      1/3 cup of sugar
      2 teaspoons of Morton’s Kosher Salt
      1 teaspoon of black pepper
      13 small Habaneros – seeded and membranes removed. (This was 2 oz. of Habaneros before cutting off the tops and removing the seeds and membranes)
      2 teaspoons curry powder
      1 cup of water when cooking
      5 or 6 cloves of garlic - roasted if you've got it
      Put it all in the crockpot on high until everything is tender. About 3 hours  Note: I used the crockpot so I don't have to worry about scorching it while it cooks. 
      Whirl in food processor – Don’t puree until smooth – make it lightly/finely chunky.
      Makes 3 pints - To can process pint jars in a water bath canner for 15 minutes
      I've thought about making this with peaches or mangoes too, but haven't tried it yet.

      500g short hollow pasta - I use Gomiti (elbows) but you can use penne or any similar shape. 200-250 g sour cream 300-350 fromage blanc or another mildly tart "farmer 's cheese" such as tvorog or quark 6 medium eggs (or 5 large ones) 8-10 spring onions, thinly sliced apx 6 tbsp chopped parsley 2 garlic loves, minced Optional: 2 tsp nutritional yeast (or a bit of MSG) salt to taste (1.5 tsp) 1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper Bread crumbs topping:
      apx 15-25g butter 9 tbsp breadcrumbs (divided 7 + 2) a large pinch of salt  
      Mix everything but the pasta and bread crumbs topping in a large bowl. Boil pasta in salted water slightly short of al-dante. Briefly wash the pasta to stop further cooking and drain well. Mix in with the batter. Melt the butter and mix with 7 tbsp bread crumbs and a bit of salt. Grease a baking pan or mold - I much prefer a silicone mold, but you can also use a springform pan. Cover the bottom of the pan with the buttery breadcrumbs. Top with the remaining 2 tbsp of breadcrumbs. Gently pour the pasta mixture on top. Bake at 190dC for apx 35 minutes, until set. You may need to cover the pan if it seems to be drying. Cool for a few minutes before flipping over a sheet pan. You may have loose breadcrumbs, put them back on top. When ready to serve, put under a medium-strong broiler until crisp and browned.

      There are two ways in which I make this dish, in first one, listed here, I use one pot to cook the vegetables and beans together. In the other I dice the vegetables and lightly saute them separately in butter. In both the vegetables are blended. The first version has a cleaner flavor, the second a slightly browned, heartier one. I'm not sure which I like better. 
       
      Ingredients:
       
      450 g dried brown Borlotti beans, soaked overnight  2 onions cut into quarters (250-300 g) 1 large carrot or two small, peeled and halved (150-200 g) 3 medium-sized celery branches, with leaves, halved 2 rosemary branches + a few leaves to serve A small sage branch 1 teaspoon fennel seeds or anise seeds 2.5 teaspoons of salt 6 garlic cloves 2-3 teaspoons "nutritional yeast" (if not using stock)  Black pepper,  generously One or two tablespoons of lemon juice About 400 g small hollow pasta, such as: Ditalini (rings) or Gnocchini (small shells) 1 teaspoon salt To serve:
      Olive oil, use an aromatic one Plenty of black pepper Grated parmesan/pecorino  cheese (optional, prefer a nutty cheese over a sharp one) A few rosemary leaves  
      preparation
      In pressure cooker, place the beans, onions, carrots, celery, rosemary, sage, fennel seeds, garlic yeast and salt. Cover with stock or water. Cook until the beans are tender (about 25 minutes under high pressure).  Remove the rosemary and sage branches and discard them. Remove a third of the beans, along with any vegetable, and blend smooth. Mix back with the whole beans.  Add a little water if the dish is too thick. Add black pepper generously and a spoon or two of lemon juice.  Add more salt if needed. To serve:
      Heat well.  Add pasta to each dish.  Drizzle with aromatic olive oil, sprinkle with some ground black pepper, a few rosemary leaves, and parmesan cheese.

      Caramel Sauce
      This recipe is from Really Nice!

      1 c sugar
      1/2 c butter (1 stick)
      1/4 c water
      1/4 tsp salt
      1 tsp vanilla extract

      In a large saucepan add sugar, butter, water and salt. Cook about 10 minutes; stirring constantly to prevent burning. You want the mixture to start turning a light brown. When this happens remove mixture from heat, add vanilla and stir. Careful, it will bubble up.
      Allow to cool to near room temperature for it to thicken up.
