What drove me to make a dish from a closed restaurant that I never dined at, I can't say. But I was still inspired by the fried polenta with sauteed mushrooms and wilted greens. I had spinach from our week 3 CSA and a cluster of shitake, oyster and baby bella mushrooms. Why not?
To save time, I grabbed already made polenta. I wasn't confident in it until hubs and I actually sat down to eat dinner because through the process it was breaking and just didn't taste right to me. I guess that is what happens when you don't make your own, but it worked out in the end!
The mushrooms were sauteed and then cooked in a red wine/broth reduction for a few minutes. The wilted greens were spinach, sauteed with just a bit of water and butter. I lightly fried the polenta in some olive oil, and then drizzled a balsamic vinaigrette with chopped basil over it all.
I wasn't anticipating it being so filling, but it was. A light meal, inspired by Disney once again!
