Easy, Lazy Grits
This recipe is my number one go-to quick meal. It is also both delicious and nutritious! My version is served with avocado (lots of) and nutritional yeast, and you can pretty much eat it whenever you damn well like. It’s creamy and savoury and a lil bit cheesy but it’s the hot sauce that gets it poppin’. It’s a good option for people who don’t like sweet b’fast, but I’m not above making it for a late night snack too. _____________________________________________________ Here are some ideas for toppings: Avocado, Hot sauce, pea sprouts, roasted tomatoes, mushrooms, garlicky kale (or whatever greens/veggies you got) S&P to taste
- 1/3 cup nutritional yeast
- 3 cups vegetable broth
- 1 cup polenta
- Bring the broth to a boil in a pot, turn the heat down low and whisk the broth up and slowly pour the polenta in. If you do this stage to fast then the grits will be all lumpy and gross so take your time. Once all the polenta has been added, stir it a few times to make sure there aren't any lumps hiding in there and then cover the pan and let it cook for about 20 minutes, stirring every few mins so it doesn't stick. The mixture should be really thick and sticky, but add more water if you think it needs it. Once the polenta is cooked, add the nutritional yeast and mix well. Season with S&P.
- Scoop the cooked grits into a bowl and top with avocado, veggies, hot sauce, and more pepper.
