Grilled Polenta and Balsamic Mushrooms

Here is what I love about this recipe. In combination, the grilled polenta, balsamic mushrooms and arugula make a delightful meal.

Serve the grilled polenta on its own as a side dish for any grilled vegetables or meats. Make the polenta ahead of time so it has time to chill before grilling. Enjoy!

Most recently, I had a pound of mushrooms that needed attention. I had farro in the pantry, Parmesan cheese in the fridge, and parsley and lemons in the garden. This was delicious, savory and very satisfying. I also have Food52 to thank – do you know it?
