Nutty earthy rich smooth grits. Excellent comfort food for the cool mornings of Autumn!  Prepare grits according to package instructions using water or a blend of non-dairy milk

and water with 1 cup dry grits or polenta When throroughly cooked, stir in until well-blended:

1/2 to 2/3 c freshly  Portabella or other mushrooms, sauteed in Earth Balance margarine

1/4 c  toasted chopped  walnuts

3 T parmesan/asiago/romano and 1/4 c sharp chedder  cheese (vegetarian)

or

2 T. nutritional yeast (vegan) and /14 c vegan cheese sub (vegan)

Finely chopped rosemary or thyme (optional)

Add plenty of  salt & pepper to taste and  additional Earth Balance if desired. Serve as is or pour into loaf pan to chill, and saute the slices in Earth Balance before serving.

Serve with stewed plums and hot coffee. Would also be a fine lunch or supper served with steamed broccoli, French bread & a glass of wine.
