Ingredients (serves 2-4):
- one pack (12oz.) firm cheese like paneer (or substitute with firm tofu)
- 4 tbs olive oil
- 4 tbs corn meal
- 1/4 tsp cumin
- paprika and salt to taste
- 1/2 jar HerbNZest Chive Tomato Sauce or Pumpkin Cooking Sauce
Using a knife, slice the paneer cheese pack into ¼ inch thick slices. Then using a heart shaped cookie cutter, cut out heart shaped pieces. Brush each heart with oil. Brush a baking pan with the remaining oil.
Create a rub by mixing: corn meal, paprika, cumin and salt. Rub each piece of cheese with the mixture and place them on a baking sheet about one inch apart.
Bake at 400 for 20 minutes until golden brown. Remove and serve hot with HerbNZest Chive Tomato or Pumpkin Cooking Sauce in a bowl to dip into.
