Southern Vegan Grits
white or yellow, coarse grind
4 + 1/4
cut into ½ in. pieces
Ear of corn,
cut into kernels
Green bell pepper,
Red pepper flakes
In a large heavy bottomed pot, bring 4 cups of broth to a boil. Add the grits in gradually while stirring constantly.
Lower heat to a simmer and cover. Stir constantly every five minutes to prevent grits from sticking.
Cook for 20 to 25 min. or until grits are tender. Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper.
While the grits are cooking, set a large sauté pan to high heat and add 1 tbsp. of oil.
When the pan is hot, add the okra and cook for 5 – 6 minutes. Shake the pan every two minutes to let the okra brown evenly. Remove the okra from the pan and set aside.
Using the same pan, turn heat down to low and add the onion and sweat for 2 -3 min. until translucent.
Add corn and ¼ cup of vegetable broth. Cover and cook for 5 min. or until corn is tender and the liquid is close to evaporating.
Add garlic and green bell peppers. Cook for 2 min. then add tomatoes, green onion, and red pepper flakes.
Cook for 5 more minutes, until the tomatoes have begun to soften. Add okra back into the pan. Season with salt and pepper and serve over grits.
The okra is cooked at a high heat to prevent it from getting slimy. Make sure your pan is hot!
