Recipe of the Month: Polenta Wedges

INGREDIENTS: 1 16- to 18-ounce tube prepared polenta, ends trimmed and cut into 12 slices Canola or olive oil cooking spray 2/3 cup soft sun-dried tomatoes 4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil 1 tablespoon lightly packed flat-leaf parsley leaves 2 teaspoons rinsed capers 1 small clove garlic, chopped Pinch of freshly ground pepper DIRECTIONS: 1. Preheat broiler. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. 2. Place polenta slices on the prepared baking sheet and coat with cooking spray. 3. Broil in upper third of oven until starting to brown, 8 to 12 minutes. Turn and broil until lightly browned, 3 to 5 minutes more. 4. Meanwhile, pulse sun-dried tomatoes, oil, parsley, capers, garlic and pepper in a food processor (a mini food processor works well), scraping down the sides as needed, until coarsely chopped. 5. Transfer the polenta slices to a clean cutting board and cut each into quarters. 6. Top each wedge of polenta with about 1/4 teaspoon of the tapenade. TIPS: For this recipe, look for soft sun-dried tomatoes (not packed in oil). If you can only find tomatoes that are very dry (and hard), soak in boiling water for about 20 minutes, then drain and chop them before using. From the kitchen of Maggie Hughes.
