Blue Cheese Polenta With Balsamic Mushrooms (Low Gi)

“Recipe found on in my search for Low GI recipes. Tried it out and it was really good. I adjusted some of the quantities to my taste (I'm a big garlic & cheese lover), so feel free to reduce the garlic or blue cheese as it might be a bit much for some. However if you're a fan, like me, this will definitely hit the spot. The combination of flavours (cheesy polenta with sweetish mushrooms) is amazing.”

  3. Add the garlic and thyme to the frying pan and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds or until aromatic. Add balsamic glaze and cook, stirring, for 1-2 minutes or until heated through.
  4. Divide the polenta among serving plates. Top with the mushroom mixture and scatter with the rocket leaves. Serve immediately. .
