    1. 1
      In a large saucepan, heat olive oil over high heat until very hot. Add the garlic and shallots and saute until they begin to give off their aroma, 2-3 minutes.
    2. 2
      Add the stock and heat just to a boil. Gradually whisk in the polenta to avoid lumps from forming. Cook until the polenta is thick, 3-4 minutes. Add the cheese and cream and mix well. Season with salt and pepper and remove from the heat. Set aside.
    3. 3
      In a small saute pan over high heat, cook the butter until golden brown, 2-3 minutes.
    4. 4
      Add the herbs and immediately remove the pan from the heat. Stir the pan roasted herbs into the polenta and serve right away. Enjoy!

      Yum! I loved the nice tang that the goat cheese gives this dish- not overpowering, but you can definitely taste it. I used vegetable stock, cilantro, and mint; to mirror the herbs in the meat dish I was serving. Thanks for posting a great alternative to rice or potatoes!

      This was fabulous. I served it at our thanksgiving instead of mashed potatoes. The fresh herbs roasted really do make a difference.
