Creamy Yellow Grits. Vegan.

Having lived in Florida for nearly 30 years, I became very familiar with the southern breakfast tradition called grits. Grits are a corn porridge, which actually originated with the American Indians. The word “grits” derives from the Old English word “grytt,” meaning coarse meal, originally referring to wheat and other porridges now known as groats in parts of the UK. Three-quarters of grits sold in the U.S. are sold in the South, from Texas to Virginia. The state of Georgia declared grits its official prepared food in 2002.

Serves 4 hungry folk. Enjoy!

Healthy trails,

  1. Yum. Yum. And yum again! I've always loved just plain grits. But these? These with the soy and cashew milk has taken regular ole' grits and turned them into gourmet grits. Just can't get enough of Helyn's Healthy Kitchen!

    I found some organic white corn grits at our farmer's market. Wow. I cook them in nothing but almond milk and add a little pepper on top when they're done. So creamy and awesome. Such a great find.
