    Lennongirl's Note:

    Recipe found on Taste.com.au in my search for Low GI recipes. Tried it out and it was really good. I adjusted some of the quantities to my taste (I'm a big garlic & cheese lover), so feel free to reduce the garlic or blue cheese as it might be a bit much for some. However if you're a fan, like me, this will definitely hit the spot. The combination of flavours (cheesy polenta with sweetish mushrooms) is amazing.

      This was really good! For some reason, I thought making polenta would be hard, but it really wasn't at all. Creamy polenta, tasty balsamic mushrooms, tangy blue cheese: this recipe really has a lot going for it. I used balsamic vinegar because I didn't have glaze. Other than that I followed the recipe exact. Oh, the peppery arugula on top was great.
