  • 1 cup mashed sweet potato
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 cups old-fashioned grits
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 2-4 tablespoons chopped green onion for garnish


  1. Pierce the sweet potato a few times with a fork and bake or microwave until soft.
  2. Remove the skin and mash. Set aside.
  3. Bring a quart of vegetable broth and 2 cups of grits to a boil in a medium-sized pot.
  4. Once boiling, reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring often.
