Grits are a cereal made from coarsely ground corn. They are typically made with savory flavors in mind, but since corn is naturally a sweet grain (high fructose corn syrup come to mind?) I thought it would make a nice substitute for a wheat or rice hot cereal.
This is a quick breakfast that won't leave you sweating over the stove all morning. Enjoy!
Cornmeal Grits with Blueberries
1/2 cup coarsely ground cornmeal
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 cup water
1 Tbsp honey
1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries (they hold up better than frozen)
Bring almond milk and water to a simmer over medium high heat. Whisk in cornmeal and continue to stir until well combined. Reduce heat to medium low and stir every 3 minutes until thickened, or ~15-20 minutes. Whisk in honey.
Spoon portions into serving bowls, then garnish with 3/4 cup fresh blueberries.
