Spicy Southern Grits From “Plant-Strong: Discover the World’s Healthiest Diet”
My first experience with grits was at a summer camp when I was in the seventh grade. I took one spoonful of the warm, gelatinous mixture and thought I was going to lose it. I tried them again in college with a very similar reaction. Now that I have a much more sophisticated and discerning palate I appreciate and devour these spicy grits!
