Goat Cheese Polenta!

This has been one of my favorite things to make this winter. :)

Goat Cheese Polenta:
1 cup mushrooms, chopped
2 leeks, chopped
3 ribs celery, chopped
1 tsp. thyme
1 Tbsp. butter
1/2 tsp. olive oil
2 cups dry polenta
4 cups water
1 vegetable bouillion cube
3 oz. goat cheese

In a frying pan, heat the butter and oil over medium high heat until melted. Add the mushrooms, leeks, thyme, and celery, and cook for about 5 minutes. In another saucepan, heat the water until boiling. Add bouillion cube, and stir. When water is boiling, add the polenta. Cook for three minutes, until polenta starts to set. Mix in the cooked vegetables, and pour into a greased baking dish.
Crumble goat cheese over the top. Grind some pepper and salt over the top. Bake in a 350* oven for about 30 minutes, until the cheese starts to brown.
