    MarraMamba's Note:

    Comforting and delicious on a cold day or evening, this polenta dish is made with soft polenta as opposed to the fried or set type. I first found this on woolfit's blog. For US measurements just hit the change button.

    Mushroom ragout

    • 500 g mixed mushrooms, sliced
    • 1/2-1 cup chopped fresh herb, try rosemary, mint, thyme, chervil, sage etc
    • butter or oil
    • salt and pepper
    • verjuice (optional)


    1. 1
      Place the milk, onion, herbs and garlic in a saucepan and slowly bring almost to the boil. Place the polenta in a large, heavy based saucepan, strain the infused milk onto the polenta, and whisk until blended.
    2. 2
      Stir constantly over moderate heat until the mixture returns to the boil. Reduce heat to very low (use a simmer mat if you have one) and cook, stirring frequently, for 20-30 minutes or until polenta is cooked and thickened.
    3. 3
      Fold in parmesan and butter and season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Serve immediately with the ragout.
    4. 4
    5. 5
      Heat the oil or butter in a large frypan or wok, and add the mushrooms (and rosemary, if using).
    6. 6
      Stir until begining to brown, then add the remaining herbs. Continue to fry until mushrooms are wilting and browned, then season with salt and pepper and serve with the polenta. If you have verjuice, you can use it to deglaze the pan and then drizzle the juices over before serving.

      I just started liking polenta so I thought I'd give this recipe a try. This served well over 4 people, but that works out better for me (more leftovers!). I had mine without the mushrooms, but my family like the ragout over the polenta very much so. I plan on making polenta this way this everytime from now on with the awesome flavor of garlic and parm. cheese.

      This was nice and very rich. Next time I think I'd cut the amount of parmesan because we found the cheese was a bit overpowering. I loved the fresh thyme though, and infusing the milk was a great idea. Thanks MarraMamba!
