This comes together fast. The grits take about 5 minutes from package to plate. The beans were leftovers that I reheated. You can’t see from this photo but they’re pretty spicy, and salty (tamari). If you don’t have cooked beans around, a spicy tomato sauce over the grits is also very good.
I use one small pot. Cook the grits, wipe the pot, heat the beans. There’s not much clean up.
You can do so much with this, add vegetables or tomato sauce, use rice instead of grits.
