Easy Vegan Savory Grits

This morning I went into my kitchen for breakfast, and was greeted by a fridge that was very empty.  No fruit left, no veggies, not even any cooked beans and rice.  No cereal in the pantry.  It’s definitely the end of the week and I need to go grocery shopping!!  BUT, the container of grits in the corner caught my eye.  There was exactly enough grits left to make a bowl.

This recipe is insanely easy.  It doesn’t require a lot of measuring or time.  Just some grits, water, plant milk, and spices.  I was very happy with how delicious this recipe was!  I did not measure the spices, but I added two shakes of each from their spice jars.  Do that first, then taste to see if you would like more heat or salt.

Easy Vegan Savory Grits


  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup cashew milk (or any plant milk)
  • 1/2 cup grits
  • 2 shakes of the spice jar each of the following spices: salt, red pepper flakes, smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and turmeric.


  1. Bring water and cashew milk to a rolling boil over high heat.
  2. Slowly stir in grits. Reduce heat to low.
  3. Stir in all spices, and simmer on low for 15-20 minutes. Grits will be creamy, thick, and not "gritty" at all! Taste and add extra spices if desired.
  4. Enjoy!
