Polenta With Rich Mushroom Gravy Recipe
🔪Prep Time: 20 minutes
👩🍳Cook Time: 45 minutes
¼ cup coconut oil
1 tablespoon chopped shallot
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon dried basil
½ cup dry white wine, such as chardonnay
3 cups vegetable broth
⅓ cup chopped Roma tomatoes
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup cornmeal
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 pound button mushrooms, sliced
1 tablespoon chopped shallots
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
3 tablespoons flour
2 cups vegetable broth
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
1 cup Pressure Cooker Tender Patties, crumbled
2Grease a 9-inch square pan.
3Heat the coconut oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the shallot and cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until tender. Add the garlic and basil and cook for another minute. Stir in the wine and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the broth, tomatoes, and salt. Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat and add the cornmeal. Cook and stir for 15 to 20 minutes or until the polenta is thickened and pulls away from the side of the pan.
4Pour into the prepared pan and spread evenly out to all 4 corners. Set aside to cool to room temperature. This should take about 20 to 30 minutes.
5While the polenta is cooling, make the mushroom gravy: Heat the olive oil in a skillet. Add mushrooms and sauté 10 to 15 minutes. Add the shallots and sauté for 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic and flour and cook for 1 more minute. Add the vegetable broth, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil and then turn down to medium and cook about 5 minutes or until it has thickened a bit. Add the crumbled patties and cook for 5 more minutes to heat through.
6Slice the polenta into squares and serve a slice or two on a plate with mushroom gravy ladled on top.

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
