    Hi, I have had polenta and it's really nice. I had mine cooled and then grilled it but I have found this rather SW friendly recipe which you could give a try

    BBC - Food - Recipes - Mediterranean Polenta

    Hope you like xx

    There are recipes online for polenta cake but they use butter. I'm not sure if you could substitute it though?

    my dad made it into a savoury bread using the powdered polenta and it was flippin gorgeous and free on SW. it had peppers, onion and mushrooms in it, but i can't remember the recipe...i think an egg was involved somewhere down the line!
