I didn't get a chance to go to the grocery store today, and my ingredients to pick from were slim tonight. I decided to create something that might please my palate. It turned out better than I ever expected. It was almost like a mini pizza with a polenta crust. I am going to make this again when I have more veggie toppings and mozzarella cheese.
Tomato Polenta Tart
1/4 cup dry polenta
1/2 cup water or chicken broth
1 tsp Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup canned or fresh tomatoes
Mix polenta, water, and cheese in a mug.
Microwave for 1 minute 30 seconds.
Stir and microwave again for 1 minute.
The polenta should be thick.
Pour polenta onto plate and shape into a crust.
Mix Italian seasoning (to taste) into tomatoes.
Top crust with tomatoes, top with desired amount of Parmesan cheese, and microwave for 1 minute.
