Recipe Ingredients:



  • 1 1/2 lbs. chanterelle mushrooms sliced
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil or butter
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 tsp. fresh thyme chopped
  • To make polenta, bring vegetable broth to a boil in a large pot over medium heat. Slowly whisk in polenta.
  • Reduce heat to low and whisk polenta until thickened, about 5 minutes.
  • Cover the pot and continue to cook, stirring every 10 minutes to prevent sticking, for 30 minutes.
  • Stir in olive oil or butter and Parmesan cheese.
  • When polenta is nearly cooked, prepare mushrooms. Heat olive oil or butter in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in mushrooms and season with sea salt, pepper, and thyme. Saute mushrooms for 10-12 minutes, or until tender.
  • Divide polenta between bowls and top with mushrooms. Garnish with additional Parmesan cheese and fresh thyme. Enjoy!
