I use quick-cook polenta to make this mushroom polenta tart which, I know, is not ideal for the purists, but perfect when you do not have a lot of time to cook.
If you prefer a vegetarian option, you can, of course, replace the dairy-free butter and cheese with dairy alternatives (organic is as always best).

Mushroom Polenta Tart [vegan] [gluten free]
- large frying pan
- oven tray
- 200 g shallots
- olive oil
- 2 garlic cloves
- 375 g mushrooms
- handful parsley
- 175 g quick-cook polenta
- 750 ml vegetable stock
- 2 Tbsp dairy-free butter
- 2 handfuls of grated vegan cheese
- Heat some olive oil in a large frying pan. Add finely chopped shallots. Fry gently until soft. Add chopped mushrooms, crushed garlic and parsley. Cook for around 10 minutes until mushrooms are cooked. Season to taste.
- In the meantime, heat the vegetable stock in a saucepan. Add the polenta and cook stirring continuously until it has a thick consistency (polenta grains will bind together to a creamy and smooth paste). When done mix in dairy-free butter.
- Pour the polenta on a lightly greased oven tray. Flatten with a spoon. Top with mushrooms mixture. Sprinkle with grated cheese.
- Place under the grill for 3-5 minutes until cheese has melted. Serve straight away.
