  1. Can this dish get made ahead of time? I wanted to take it to work for a potluck; but I’d have to make it a day early.

  2. What about garlic and herb bread crumbs, you think?

    The shrimp doesn’t need to be sautéed in advance of adding to recipe, right? I marinated shrimp in garlic and old bay overnight.

    Using stock instead of broth. Hoping changes will not make it too salty so cutting out separate salt in recipe.

    • I think garlic and herb crumbs would make it nice. I wouldn’t worry about sauteeing them in advance. Nothing wrong with changing it up. If it works great I will make some updates to the recipe. Let me know how it went and what changes were made. I will update. Thank you

      Vegan Shrimp and Grits

      3 cups vegetable stock
      3/4 cup yellow stone-ground grits
      1/8 cup extra virgin olive oil
      1 tsp. soy margarine
      1 small onion, sliced
      2 cloves garlic, minced
      1 lb. vegan shrimp
      1/4 tsp. thyme
      1/4 tsp. salt
      1/8 tsp. white pepper

      In a medium saucepan, bring the stock to a boil. Stir in the grits and reduce the heat to low. Cook, stirring occasionally, until silky, about 10 minutes.
      Meanwhile, heat the olive oil and margarine in a skillet over medium heat. Sauté the onions until tender, then toss in the garlic and vegan shrimp. Season with the thyme, salt, and pepper and cook for 4 to 5 minutes, or according to “shrimp” package directions.
      Spoon the “shrimp” mixture over the grits and serve hot.
