Weeknight Polenta With Roasted Mushrooms

This polenta with roasted mushrooms is an all-time favourite of mine in the winter. It’s warming, indulgent and ever so comforting, great for lunch or a weeknight dinner.

This dish I normally save for myself when I’m home alone, one because I hate to share and secondly, Leanora is not a fan of mushrooms, so more for me in my tummy, another bonus is, it takes no time at all to make after a long day at work no one wants to be in the kitchen slaving away.

January calls for something healthy, I have even decided to start growing my own vegetables and I’ve just purchased my first ever bag of seed potatoes, I’ll let you know how it goes! Whilst this dish is somewhat a little bit naughty with all the cheesy goodness in the polenta, the vegetables totally balance's out the healthy vs naughtiness ratio, well in my eyes anyway.

Chestnut mushrooms
Fresh thyme
Bullion (vegetable stock)

  1. Line a baking tray with some parchment paper and lay out your chopped mushrooms, add 4 cloves of garlic a few sprigs of thyme, season with salt and pepper, 3 tbsp of olive oil, enough to cover but not saturated the ingredients and toss gently and make sure all ingredients are coated and mixed together and place in on middle shelf of the oven at 180c
  2. Boil the kettle and grab a saucepan add 1 1/2 cups of boiling water to pan once bubbling add your bullion.
  3. Add into your pan the polenta and stir until all lumps are out. Stir in 150g of grated Parmesan and a small bun of butter to make extra creamy. Once it all comes together season if desired with pepper.
  4. Take out your roasted mushrooms and plate up on top of your polenta.
Bon appetite.

Super quick and easy to make. A truly indulgent dish which I like to have with a nice glass of red wine enjoyed on the sofa with a few candles burning and my fave podcast in the background.
