Its raining, so a bowl of comfort!
Its simple, mushrooms, sliced onions, chopped thyme and garlic go into a pan with alittle butter and olive oil, saute, deglaze with red wine, reduce and season, pour over cheesy creamy polenta, chase it with a glass of a big Rhone red!
I like to make this colorfull salad every fall when these ingredients are in season. Its different and very dramatic on the plate, use a clear vinagrette so the colors will stay fresh.

Garlic sauteed brocoli with creamy polenta, its cheap, fast and healthy. I always have on hand polenta, garlic and onions so just a head of brocoli to buy.
bring salted water to a boil then add polenta slowly and stir till done, about 30 minutes, finish with grated parma cheese and heavy cream. then saute in olive oil brocoli with sliced onion, chopped garlic, chili flakes, pour polenta in a big bowl add brocoli and its ready.
