    Lalaloula's Note:

    Got this recipe from a supermarket brochure and have been quite surprised at how tasty it is. So easy to make and very healthy as well! =) For a variation just take peppers instead of tomatoes or couscous instead of the polenta.

      Wonderful! The acidity of the tomatoes with the polenta was a great match and it was something not too heavy so makes a great side. Made all as directed other than flipped the 'lid' off for the last 5 minutes or so to brown up the polenta mix a little.

      Nice recipe, fast, tasty and good looking. I will make it again with a little variation: roasting the tomatoes in advance and omitting the egg and sprinkling some feta cheese on top instead.

      I whole heartedly enjoyed these for a light lunch. I used homegrown 'maters which made them all the better! I did get CRAZY with this and added some queso fresco, onion flakes, fresh chives, fresh parsley, and some Greek seasoning. LOVED it. I cut the recipe in half and made 3 tomatoes and had extra polenta which I put in the fridge to serve with another meal. I am wondering if the egg mixture is necessary. . .may try without next time. . .and there WILL be a next time. Made for Veg*n Tag August 2009. Thanks girlie!
