Baked Cheese Grits
This recipe is adapted from Bob’s Red Mill. It uses soy grits, which are similar to corn grits, but made from toasted soy beans that have been ground into coarse pieces. They’re available on their website at www.bobsredmill.com, and in the green section of some supermarkets.
Ingredients 1¾ cups chicken stock
¾ cup Bob’s Red Mill soy grits
½ teaspoon kosher salt
3 ounces processed American cheese (such as Velveeta), cubed
3 eggs, well beaten
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
¼ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
½ cup grated carrot
½ cup minced celery
¼ cup minced onion
Instructions Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 1 1/2 quart casserole dish. Bring broth to a boil in a saucepan. Stir in grits, cover and reduce heat. Simmer 5 minutes or until done, stirring occasionally. Combine grits with remaining ingredients and pour into prepared dish and bake for 30 minutes or until lightly browned.
