From the Test Kitchen

As rain reinvigorates the fields, conditions are becoming perfect for a wide variety of mushrooms. In this dish you’ll sauté three different varieties (cremini, oyster and pioppini) and finish them in a goat cheese-infused sauce to highlight their rustic, rich flavor. We’re also taking full advantage of the season’s leafy herbs with a lightly-seasoned garnish containing parsley, chives and chervil—a fine herb with a delicate flavor similar to aniseed. Served atop hearty polenta, these seasonal favorites make the perfect vegetarian entrée.
