 Ingredients List

  • 3 c Water
  • 1 1/2 c Cornmeal
  • 1 Onion -- chopped
  • 2 Cloves garlic
  • 1 Red bell pepper
  • 1 Zucchini
  • 1 sm Eggplant -- (optional)
  • 6 oz Mushrooms
  • Fresh or dried marjoram,
  • Oregano, basil
  • Fresh ground pepper
  • Salt


Bring water to boil in heavy pan. Lower to simmer. Add corn meal in VERY
FINE STREAM, stirring constantly. Once all of meal is added, keep stirring
until the mush pulls away from the sides of the pan or you feel you are
going to start screaming uncontrollably ( It helps to listen to something
very compelling while doing this, either a spouse, SO, the radio, or a
political demonstration). Pour immediately onto a flat plate, a cake tin,
or a tart pan. Smooth top and cool for 30 minutes until firm.

Meanwhile, saute onions and garlic until lightly brown in olive oil. Add
chopped vegetables and seasonings, cook until soft. Pile, with juices from
veggies, onto polenta. Spread around. Add any seasonings you want and
enough cheese to cover if you want (which is why I didn't put in amounts).
Broil or nuke until melted and toasted sort of on top. Eat warm or cool.
