These balsamic mushrooms over arugula and cheesy polenta dish is SO GOOD and perfect for a meatless Monday recipe! All the ingredients used to make this dish are from Door to Door Organics (organic grocery delivery) which I am obsessed with.
With my days and nights (and seemingly every minute in between) being scheduled with something or other that needs to get done (read: cookbook editing) I just simply don’t have time to spend hours upon hours grocery shopping (heck, I don’t even have half an hour most days). So when I discovered Door to Door Organics over a year ago (here is my first ever DTDO order), I thought it would be one of those things I would try to see how it worked, but in the back of my mind I really didn’t know if I would like it.
Then, week after week, I found myself loving the content of the boxes! I loved that I could actually go in have preferences of ‘don’t send me xyz’ or even that I could substitute certain fruits or vegetables with other ones. It was so customizable to what I was in the mood for. Beyond produce (and probably one of my all-time favorite features of Door to Door Organics) they have an entire store of groceries that one can purchase; everything from staples like flour/sugar/eggs/ etc., to more specialized items, like corn grits. Once a week I ask my husband if he wants anything specific because I’m placing my order. Then I go online and just order away. It’s SO EASY. Truly, I love the service.
So as I was doing my weekly grocery shopping, I came across an organic mushroom medley that was on sale. The sampler of organic mushrooms came with a 2-pack of portabellas, 1/3 of a pound of shiitakes, and 8 oz of creminis (aka baby bellas). When they arrived I used them immediately to make this dish. I then proceeded to order the mushrooms again and make this exact same dish a week later because I was so in love with the flavor combination.
The mushrooms are cooked in a balsamic sauce with bold and rice flavors which are perfectly complimented by the cheesy polenta, and then the arugula ties all the flavors together with a peppery crispness. It’s a comforting dish, but also a springy dish because of the beautiful colors! And, since there’s no meat, it’s a wonderful meatless Monday recipe!
