  • ¾ cup Bow & Arrow Brand white cornmeal
  • 3 cups water
  • 3 tablespoons nondairy margarine
  • ¾ teaspoon sea salt
  • To taste: freshly ground black pepper


  • Two 15 oz. cans pinto beans, drained (3 cups cooked beans)
  • ½ cup tomato sauce
  • ¼ cup nutritional yeast powder
  • 4 large cloves garlic, minced or pressed
  • 1 teaspoon EACH: dried oregano and ground cumin

  1. For the Grits:In a medium-large pot, place the cornmeal and water. Set to medium-high heat and bring to a boil, stirring with a wire whisk. Reduce heat to low and continue to whisk often until thick. This should take 10-20 minutes. Remove from heat and whisk in the margarine, salt, and pepper until well combined.
  2. While the Grits are cooking, make the Pintos: Place all of the “Pintos” ingredients in a pot over medium heat, stirring well. Once the mixture begins to bubble, reduce heat to low. Simmer for 5-10 minutes, stirring often, until the beans are hot and the sauce has thickened.
  3. To serve: Top the grits with the pintos and serve hot or warm.
