Easy Mushroom Ragu with Parmesan Polenta

Here’s the perfect compromise: creamy, cheesy polenta topped with a tomatoey herb- and garlic-loaded mushroom ragù that’s so savory, you might even forget it’s meatless.

Rich and savory portobello mushroom ragu served over creamy cheese polenta — a flavor bomb vegetarian main dish! Are you’re craving polenta for dinner? How about the heartiness of a rich-tasting, meaty ragu, only it’s completely vegetarian? You’re going to love this portobello mushroom ragu, a sauce that tastes complex and slow-cooked, but that actually comes together in just under an hour.

It makes a fantastic one-bowl meal served over creamy Parmesan polenta. After all, polenta is a gluten-free whole grain, and the robust, chunky sauce is vegetarian, full of fiber and mineral-rich portobellos. Although the combo of cheesy polenta and this super-tasty sauce feels totally indulgent, I have no problem whatsoever tagging this recipe as healthy.

One reason this dish tastes so delicious is that it includes ingredients that happen to be full of umami, a word that basically translates from Japanese to mean “yummy”!


  • 3 tablespoons (45 ml) extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 shallots, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced
  • salt
  • 1 pound (500 g) portobello mushrooms caps, sliced into 1-inch chunks
