Masterpiece Grits – GOAT

MASTERPIECE GRITS – GOAT

Considering it’s a masterpiece it didn’t take long, but is it ever good! I don’t know if food can be sublime, but we’ll make an exception with these grits – SUBLIME to the NINES! I don’t even like grits, but I love these. It makes a lot, so experiment with different ways to serve it.

You didn’t expect Tofu Grits. You also couldn’t have expected delicate textures and flavors in such a common dish! But that’s what it’s about! Okay, then we top with slow-cooked fresh sweet red peppers and sweet onion in extra virgin olive oil and garlic – done to perfection, just soft enough to bring out the natural sweetness! I say YES to grits – and instant at that! Does this ever end? No!!

Further, top with a dollop of tapenade (Kalamata olive paste), fresh basil strips and a drizzle of extra virgin olive followed by fresh cracked pepper and fresh grind black Himalayan salt (for an eggy flavor)!
