Method

20-25 minutes
 

We used cream cheese instead of an egg custard, and cooked polenta instead of shortcrust pastry for the base.

1. Preheat the oven grill.

2. Bring the water or stock to the boil (add a pinch of salt is using water). Gradually sprinkle the polenta over the boiling water while stirring continuously with a wire whisk. Beat until smooth. Cover and simmer gently for 10-15 minutes or until the polenta is done. Stir occasionally to prevent the polenta from sticking to the bottom of the saucepan.

3. Stir in the butter and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. 4 Divide the polenta among

4. small quiche tins or spoon into 1 large tin. Let it cool slightly, then press it against the inside of the tin.

5. Topping Heat the oil and fry the onions until fragrant. Add the peppers and stir-fry until just done.

6. Spoon the mixture into the polenta bases and arrange the salami or chorizo on top.

7. Spoon cream cheese on top of the quiche/s and grill for 3-5 minutes or until lightly browned on top. Serve lukewarm garnished with basil.
