Truffled Roasted Mushrooms on Garlic Polenta

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by jenne

Great vegetarian meal complements of Whole Foods. Feel free to mix it up and use a combo of button, shiitake, portabello, and/or oyster mushrooms! This is best at room temperature, so it is perfect to serve as an appetizer for a party! Also great served with a salad as a meal.

This was delish and so tasty as well. It was simple enough for a weeknight meal. My polenta did not get hard enough to cut into circles- but I'm assuming that's my fault becaused I didn't follow the recipe exactly and used soy milk instead. I served this as a main dish with a side of roasted asparagus. Thanks for posting! Made for the March 09 veg swap.

  1. Preheat oven to 500°F
  2. Bring milk, garlic, pepper and salt to a boil over medium heat. Slowly whisk in cornmeal, stirring occasionally for about 10 minutes. Transfer to a small sheet pan and smooth with a spatula. Set aside to cool.
  3. Toss mushrooms with truffle oil, salt and pepper on a large sheet pan. Roast until tender, 7 to 10 minutes.
  4. Use a 2-inch round cookie cutter to cut polenta into rounds. Sear both sides in a hot pan over high heat for 1 minute.
  5. Arrange polenta rounds on a platter and top each with roasted mushrooms. Grate cheese over tops. Garnish with basil and balsamic glaze.
  6. Serve at room temperature.
