The delicious earthiness of mushrooms is paired beautifully with fragrant garlic and thyme and served on a hearty and cheesy polenta. This recipe takes the classic ingredients for mushroom stroganoff and gives them an exciting twist to create a tasty midweek main.

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan set over a medium high heat. Add the mushrooms and garlic and cook for 4-5 minutes. Stir in the thyme and cook for 1-2 minutes more. Season well.
  2. Meanwhile, put the water in a pan and bring to the boil. Gradually pour in the polenta, stirring constantly for 5 minutes, or until all the liquid has been absorbed. Stir in the butter, most of the cheese and some seasoning.
  3. To serve, divide the polenta between 2 plates and top with the mushrooms. Scatter over the remaining cheese and parsley.
