    1. Brush a 20cm x 25cm baking tin with a little oil. Heat the butter and 1 tbsp oil in a frying pan; fry the courgette and garlic for 15 minutes, until soft and golden.

    2. Bring 500ml water and the salt to the boil in a large pan. Pour in the polenta; cook for 5 minutes, stirring continuously. Stir in the courgette and cheese, then cook for a further 1-3 minutes, until very thick. Pour into the tin, spreading the mixture out (about 1 cm deep), then set aside for 30 minutes, or until firm.

    3. Preheat the oven to 220˚C, gas mark 7. Cut the polenta into chunky chips and toss with a little more oil. Spread out on a parchment-lined baking sheet and roast for 25-30 minutes, turning halfway, until crunchy and golden. Serve warm. SF
