Ingredients & Directions

Recipe Ingredients


Yield: Corn Grits and Vegetables (1 Servings)
Needed Kitchenware: Cooking pot, non-stick pan
  • ⅓ cup corn grits
  • ½ cup black beans, canned, drained
  • 1 medium zucchini
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 small red onion
  • 1 tsp roasted garlic and peppers seasoning (I used Club House)
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp chili flakes, or to taste
  • Salt, to taste
  • 1 tbsp cilantro, chopped
  • (optional) hot sauce, to serve
Recipe Directions


  • Cook corn grits per package instructions, in water and a little salt. Stir occasionally while cooking to prevent sticking. Set aside when done.
  • While corn grits are cooking, chop all the vegetables and add them to a non-stick pan over low medium heat. Add all the seasoning, mix, and sauté for about 10 minutes. Add 1 tablespoon of water if the vegetables are sticking to the pan.
  • Add the black beans and sauté for another 5 minutes.
  • Serve the grits with the vegetables and top with cilantro. Enjoy!
