Grilled Balsamic Mushrooms and Polenta is a simple, vegetarian grilled dinner full of marinated grilled mushrooms, tender grilled polenta, fresh arugula, and Parmesan cheese.

When it comes to vegetarian recipes, the two requests I get most often are for slow cooker recipes and grilling recipes. And since its summer, I decided to share one of my favorite meatless grilling recipes. It's seriously the easiest thing to make and the flavor of the earthy marinated mushrooms with the creamy polenta is so so good. And then there's the cheese of course. You could use Parmesan as the recipe suggests but I often switch it up with goat cheese, feta cheese, or burrata.
