    1. Preheat oven grill. Grease a large baking dish or roasting tin. Line the prepared dish with polenta slices; set aside.
    2. Combine diced tomatoes, cucumber and olives in a large bowl. Add balsamic vinegar, olive oil, oregano, basil and salt and pepper to taste; mix. Spoon this topping over the polenta slices, then sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
    3. Grill until the polenta is hot and the cheese is lightly browned, about 3 minutes.

    Parmesan cheese

    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 supermarkets look for the 'Parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.
