- It is great for all meals of the day! Grits are usually a breakfast side dish, but there's no time you can't serve this 4-ingredient corn dish. Skip the dairy and make yours with just nutritional yeast, vegetable broth, and a little vegan butter.
- FOUR simple ingredients! Corn grits: There are two types of grits — yellow grits and white grits. They're made from different colors of corn but essentially cook the same!

This took me back to my family roots! I loved this, I'd been missing the southern cooking and this brought me back but vegan style, Thank you!
do you know how grits differ from the "johnnycake" corn meal of Rhode Island fame in taste, creaminess, etc.
Hi Chip, that is a great question. I wasn't too sure so I had to research that a bit. So both are the same ingredient but the course grind is much different. The grits are much larger. So in this case I would think that the grits would be thicker, but the johnycake corn meal would be much smoother. I think 🙂 I hope that helps 🙂
