Polenta with Creamy Mushroom Sauce

Polenta with Creamy Mushroom Sauce

This mushroom sauce has such sophisticated flavor, you won’t believe how easy it is to make. We love the smooth, creamy texture and nutty, rich taste of fontina cheese when paired with full-flavored shiitakes. Make it a Meal: Toss steamed broccolini with olive oil, lemon juice and salt to serve alongside.

Serves 4

Prep Time 25 min

Total Time 30 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 16-ounce t prepared plain polenta, sliced into 8 rounds
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup minced onion
  • 1 pound mushrooms, such as white or cremini, sliced
  • 2 cups stemmed and sliced shiitake mushrooms, (4 1/2 ounces with stems)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 2/3 cup shredded fontina cheese, (see Note)
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh tarragon

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.

Step 2

Arrange the polenta on the prepared baking sheet and bake until crispy on the bottom and heated through, about 20 minutes.

Step 3

Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring often, until lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in mushrooms, salt and pepper, and cook, stirring often, until the mushrooms are softened and most of the liquid has evaporated, 8 to 10 minutes.

Step 4

Pour in wine; bring to a boil and scrape up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Reduce the liquid until the pan is almost dry, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in sour cream and bring to a simmer. Remove from the heat, stir in cheese and tarragon. Serve the sauce over the polenta.
