Creamy Spinach Polenta with Thyme Mushrooms


  • ¾ cup instant polenta
  • 1 cup water (or veggie stock)
  • 1 cup plant based mylk
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tsp Coconut Oil
  • 150g mushrooms (aprox 3 cups), sliced
  • 5 fresh thyme springs
  • 2-3 handfuls of baby spinach
  • handful of fresh basil, chopped
  • chilli to served


  1. Add water, mylk and a good pinch of salt to a medium sized pot and bring up to a boil.
  2. While the water/mylk is coming up to temperature heat a frying pan over a medium heat and add the coconut oil. Chop your mushrooms and add to the pan along with the leaves of a few sprigs of thyme. Season with cracked pepper and a little salt. Toss occasionally but make sure to concentrate on your polenta pot!
  3. Once your water and mylk are boiling add your polenta in a steady stream while you whisk vigorously. Continue whisking adding another cup of water to thin. The polenta is ready when it leaves the side of the pot but is still runny - approximately 10 mins. When the polenta is almost ready add the baby spinach and stir through until wilted.
  4. Divide the polenta between two bowls and top with mushrooms, fresh basil, fresh chilli and cracked pepper. Enjoy!
