Corn Pucks with Roasted Beetroots and Potatoes

These corn pucks are incredibly delicious, and are something Jason had at a few lunch buffets at his work. After eating so many of them, he had to have the recipe so we could make them at home, and this is it 🙂

These pucks are great as the main part of a dinner, like we had tonight, or as a snack to have during your day, at a picnic, or even on the bike! You can adapt it as you like, to add different spices, but we think the original (from Chef Sofie Göransson) is still the best.

Ingredients Serves 4
Cooking time: 45 mins

  • 2 clove of garlic
  • 2 tsp chili flakes or chili powder
  • 100 ml polenta
  • 300 g cooked corn (on the cob or tinned)
  • 2 eggs
  • 300 ml crème fraĂ®che
  • 50 ml corn flour or corn starch
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1 tbs sweet and sour sauce
  • 1 kg beetroots
  • 300 g potatoes
  • oil
  • Set oven to 225°C

  1. Peel the beetroots and wash the potatoes.
  2. Cut the beetroots and potatoes into thick slices. (About 1 cm is good.)
  3. Put a piece of baking paper on an oven-proof tray.
  4. Spread out the sliced vegetables onto the tray.
  5. Pour some oil over the vegetables and sprinkle a generous amount of salt and pepper on top.
  6. Put the tray in the oven and cook for 25-30 mins, until starting to brown.
  7. Finely chop the garlic.
  8. Put the garlic, 1 tsp chili flakes (or powder), 50 ml crème fraîche, the eggs, polenta, corn, and corn flour (or starch) and mix well. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  9. Put a frying pan on a medium-high heat with some oil.
  10. Put a spoonful of the mixture on the frying pan and flatten to make pucks. Repeat so you have a few pucks in the pan.
  11. Fry the pucks on each side for a few minutes, until golden and slightly firm. Repeat for all the mixture.
  12. Mix 250 ml crème fraîche, 1 tsp chili flakes (or powder) and 1 tbs sweet and sour sauce in a bowl as a dipping sauce.
  13. Put some beetroot, potatoes and pucks on a plate. Have some dipping sauce in a bowl to the side.
  14. Enjoy!

    I was trying to figure out where the beetroot was and then I realised it was golden beetroot! I have never seen that over here in the UK. Do you think this recipe would work as well with traditional red beetroot or would the colour run? Xx
