An excellent Three-Tomato Tart from Sophie Grigson’s 100 Vegetarian Feasts. I’ve made some really nice things from that book, including some Vegetarian No-Meat Balls with Tomato Sauce which I will have to take a picture of next time.
This is a sort of cross between a pizza and a tart, which ends up enormous and puffy. I accidentally bought ready-made polenta instead of the floury stuff, which I was meant to use on the tart to soak up some of the liquid on the topping. I’m not one to waste food, so I grated some of the polenta on top. Although it didn’t taste like cheese, it certainly gave the effect, and it worked fine. I’m grateful for the mistake, though, because it meant I discovered polenta, which is really versatile and full of vitamins and iron. I had it fried with tinned mackerel (in spicy sauce), onion, garlic and noodles the next day, in an attempt to use it up. It doesn’t have any taste really, but it has a nice texture like potato and bulks food out.
