Nonna’s polenta slice
1 bunch spring onion, finely chopped
1 cup polenta
3 cups boiling water
1 teaspoon baking powder
Preheat oven to 180C. Sauté spring onion in a large frypan. In a medium sized bowl add all remaining ingredients and together with the cooked spring onion, mix well. Pour into a creased baking dish on baking paper and sprinkle the top with olive oil. Place in the oven and bake for about 30 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool in dish then slice into pieces to serve. Great for lunches and picnics or just for sitting on the front verandah on a hot day circa 1960.
To the right: Nonna’s scary knife! Great for cutting this torta tho.
