Chilli Corn Pie

Tuesday night again, and it's time for the Tuesday Night Vego Challenge with Linda. Here's one of our summer favourites as our garden has most of the ingredients at this time of year.

These are the ingredients from the garden and our chooks. The chilli was some that we dried last year.

And here are the ingredients from the pantry.
Chop and fry the onions, and garlic and add chilli, add the diced zucchini and capsicum, Cut the kernals from the corn and add that to the pan and then dice the tomatoes and add those too. If mixture is a little dry I add some tomato puree previously made.Then add some beans- I use cannelini beans or red kidney beans. If I don't have time to soak dried beans I use tinned, but that's not ideal.Once that's cooked pour into an oven proof dish and prepare the polenta.

Mix together 2/3 cup polenta with 1Tblspn plain flour, 1/2 tspn salt and 2 tspn. baking powder.. Make a well in the centre and add 1 beaten egg, 6 tblspn milk 1 tblspn oil. Beat until a smooth batter is formed, and spoon over the mixture and sprinkle with a cup of cheese.Bake in oven at 220C for 25- 30 mins.

I forgot to take a photo. This is from one we had previously
I serve it with a fresh salad also from the garden.
