    hi ladies
    I found some 'East end' make dried (coarse it says on packet) polenta in morrisons , it was only about 35p for a quite big pack, and i checked the syn value online and it is def. free on green, but i havent a clue what to do with it? Any help much appreciate, it did have a recipe for chapatis on the pack mmMMMmmm but i think that would mean i used it as flour so dont think i better make them :cry:

    LOL...sounds just like something I would do, sounds like a good idea at the time.....it's free so must buy it.....get home, now what the hell do I do with it!!

    You could try this, I've made it a few times & it's really tasty...not like sandwich bread, more like speciality bread:

    Chilli corn bread


    fry light
    250g/9oz fine polenta
    1 tsp baking powder
    salt & pepper plenty of it!
    4 large eggs lightly beaten
    300g/11oz very low fat natural yogurt
    275g/10oz canned sweetcorn kernals drained
    2 mild green chilli's deseeded & finely chopped
    200g/7oz bottled roasted red peppers in brine rinsed drained & finely chopped
    6 spring onions finely sliced

    preheat the oven to 170/gas 3 spray a 20cm/8in baking tin with fry light.
    Mix together the polenta & baking powder & season well.
    In a jug combine the beaten egg & yogurt & pour into the polenta mixture, add the sweetcorn, chillies, red pepper & spring onions & stir lightly to combine.
    Pour the batter into the flan dish & bake in the oven for 35-40mins until firm & lightly browned on top, cut the warm bread into squares or slices & serve immediately.
