In the words of Jimmy Fallon "Oh my gosh, oh my gosh. SO good.". S e r i o u s. These melted my morning with loveeeee. I'm originally a southern girl, as some as ya'll know ;) Yes indeed. From Georgia to be exact. Now living in LA. Pursuing the acting dream. And creating vegan recipes in my spare time :) So I was thinking last night how much I want grits. But as you know I'm taking a vacation from cheese. So I decided to make these grits from the polenta bag I got yesterday. "Bob's Red Mill" to be exact. They have a really good basic polenta recipe that I tweaked and added my spin to. Always spice of course.
Okay and lets get one thing strait. I NEVER will add sweet to MY grits. You can add them to yours all you want. But no sugar here. No sweet. No nothing, near my spicy cheezy grits :)
Make these. Seriously- in NO time. and you will be happy :)
Spicy Cheezy Grits.
1 cup grits/polenta
3 cups water
1/2 -1 jalapeno (minced) [I should've used the whole thing :( ]
2 cloves garlic (minced )
>>> Bring water to boil, with a little salt.
add in all other ingredients and stir. Stirrr stir stir... Lower heat, to a simmer.
And just keep on stirrrrrring. It'll slowly become thicker. And reach the consistency of the grits you want. It took me a little less than 5 minutes to get to my desired consistency. Image below.
Top with cashew cheeze!
Ya'll enjoy now ya hear! ;)
