Goldilocks Grits


Putting a new and delicious twist on an old classic. Grits are a great meal for kids, heck, for the whole family! Add some pureed butternut squash and now we're talking. Maybe add a bit of cheese? Mmmhmmm. Pair with a baked chicken and you've got dinner made. This also makes for a great breakfast!

(Makes about two small servings)

1/2 cup corn grits (regular, not instant)
1 1/2 cups water
1/4 cup squash baby food (about 2.5 ounces) or freshly roasted and pureed *
1/4 cup vegan cheddar cheese
Salt & pepper to taste 

1. Bring water to a boil.

2. Slowly stir in the grits and turn the heat down. 

3. Cook, stirring continuously for at least 5 minutes. 

4. Stir in the cheese, squash, salt and pepper to taste.


* Want to make your own puree? It's easy. Cut butternut squash into cubes and put on a pan in a 350°degree oven for 20-30 minutes or until fork tender. Add to a food processor using a tablespoon of water. Add salt and pepper.
