    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Lightly grease a round sandwich (sponge)cake pan.
    2. 2
      Using a large saucepan, bring the stock to a boil. Add the polenta and reduce to a simmer. Stir constantly for about 10-15 minutes, or until the polenta is very thick.
    3. 3
      Remove from the heat and stir in the cheeses, basil, olives and tomatoes.
    4. 4
      Press the polenta mixture firmly into the prepared tin. Smooth over the top. Cool to room temperature and then refrigerate until firm. this will be at least 2 hours.(This stage can be done a day ahead).
    5. 5
      Cut polenta into 16 wedges. Dust the wedges in flour (use either regular or gluten-free/rice flour)and shallow fry in a large frying pan, until browned and crisp on both sides. Drain on absorbent paper (or use a wire rack) before serving.
    6. 6
      Variation- use a larger tin - that will produce a flatter polenta cake. Cut into squares or wedges. Spray with a cooking oil spray and grill, BBQ or use a health grill.
    7. 7
      Should have 8 serves.

      We quite enjoyed this but it hasn't fully converted us to polenta. I used rice flour and found most of the delicious crusty bits ended up in the pan (a bit of a bonus for the cook!) but did manage a few nicer looking sides for a photo. I would recommend making sure you have aboslutely everything ready to go for step 3 as polenta sets very fast-something I remembered as I was stirring and trying to chop olives and tomatoes and grate and crumble cheese. I stirred my polenta about 25 minutes until it was super smooth. Served with a simple tomato and onion sauce.

      The best polenta wedges I have tried so far, and I tried a lot! I had these with ratatouille - just close your eyes and you feel like you are sitting at the Cote d'Azur!
