  • 1L (4 cups) Campbell’s Real Stock Vegetable or Chicken

  • 1 cup (90g) grated parmesan
  • 2 tablespoons thyme leaves
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced (using a mandoline)

  • Extra virgin olive oil, to drizzle
  • 1/4 cup (40g) pitted kalamata olives

Step 1         Preheat the oven to 200C. Grease a 26cm loose-bottomed tart pan.

Step 2         Combine the stock and 1 cup (250ml) water in a saucepan over medium heat.

Step 3         Bring to a simmer, then add the polenta in a slow, steady stream, whisking constantly. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 10-12 minutes until slightly thickened.

Step 4         Add the parmesan and thyme. Season, then cook, stirring, for a further 2-3 minutes until melted and combined.

Season well and drizzle with olive oil, then bake for a further 5-7 minutes until the zucchini is slightly tender and the cheese has melted.

Step 6         Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly in the pan.

Step 7         Remove tart from pan, scatter with olives and basil leaves, then serve.
