 Cheesy Garlic Grits

Cheesy garlic grits a recipe I came up with when I was trying to lose weight. I had a dish at a gathering that was delicious and asked for the recipe which was totally fattening. I lightened up the ingredients for a healthier version.

For this recipe I used quick cooking polenta grits. I like the coarser texture and quick cooking time. You can substitute white grits or cornmeal. Cooking time can be up to an hour depending on which is used and you may have to add more cooking liquid. 


Yield 4 to 6 servings

1 C polenta corn grits
3 C vegetable stock or broth
3 cloves garlic finely chopped
½ teaspoon salt or to taste
1 C shredded cheddar (or other cheese)
Chopped garden tomatoes
Chopped herbs (I used basil and parsley)
Black pepper to taste

Wow, sounds like a fairly simple, and yet versatile dish. Something that's been passed along through the ages. Why, I picture mountain men and women gathered round a big black kettle, scooping gads of grits into their wooden bowls.
