Broccoli Cheese Grits Recipe

Broccoli Cheese Grits Recipes

Ingredients :

2 cups water

1/2 cup yellow or white corn grits

1/2 to 1 cup finely chopped broccoli

2 tbsp nutritional yeast flakes

2 tsp extra virgin olive oil

2 tsp organic flaxseed oil (or additional olive oil)

1/2 tsp salt

Method :
  1. Combine the water, and broccoli in a heavy bottomed saucepan and bring to a boil. Simmer for 5 minutes.

  2. Remove from heat and stir in the grits with a long handled wooden spoon. Return to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes.

  3. Stir well, add remaining ingredients, and mix thoroughly.

If the polenta sticks to the bottom of your saucepan, use a flame tamer (also called a heat diffuser) underneath.

Although some might think it strange, I love hot polenta for breakfast. It also makes an interesting main meal or side dish. Nutritional yeast flakes add cheeselike undertones, while broccoli adds flavor, nutrition, and beautiful flecks of green. Do not be tempted to substitute cornmeal, as you will not have good results. Use only the more coarsely ground corn grits, which can be found in natural food stores.

Serves 2 as a main dish or breakfast; serves 4 as a side dish
