  1. Grease a 20cm square baking tray and set aside.

  2. In a large saucepan add water and polenta. Turn on heat.

  3. Bring to a low simmer and add stock powder. Stir continuously for up to 10 minutes or until all the water has reduced and the polenta is smooth and thick. Take off heat.

  7. Heat some olive oil in a non-stick frying pan and fry each side until golden. Place on paper towels and season with salt and pepper. Cook in several batches, adding more oil as required.

  8. When ready to serve top each square with crumbled feta, a spoon of Beetroot & Shiraz Relish and a sprig of thyme.
