Polenta is a highly versatile Italian yellow cornmeal which can be used in a variety of ways in a wide range of dishes. This recipe is for a polenta loaf which is then sliced and fried in oil. These fried polenta slices are perfect as a base or side dish for many meat and vegetable creations.
Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In shops look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.
