To make polenta:
put 2 cups of polenta in a big pot over medium heat and slowly add 4 cups of water as you stir. When the polenta begins to thicken and pulls away from the pan it is cooked. Add little more poltenta to make it a thick mixture.
- you can fry up some onion, garlic and herbs and toss them in with the polenta and pour it into a greased baking dish.
- after the polenta has baked in the oven for about 20 mins, you can add any toppings you like. For example, Sundried tomatoes, olives and feta are a great combination either on top or mixed into the polenta before baking.
- Other topping ideas: cheeses (parmesan, mozzarella, gorgonzola), tomato slices, fried onions, capers, and chopped herbs (parsley, oregano, basil). If you use lots of chopped tomato,herbs, oil and garlic, it will be more of a bruschetta.
