Number of Servings: 2


    1/2 cup of grits
    10 oz of shrimp
    1 cup of 1% or nonfat milk
    1 cup of water
    1 cup of vegetable broth divided
    2 tablespoons + 1 tsp of margarine (60 calories per tbls)
    1 and 1/2 cups of fresh green beans
    3 slices of center cut bacon


Combine milk, water and 1/2 cup of the vegetable broth. Bring to a slow boil. Slowly add grits. Turn down heat and let cook for about 5 minutes. You want the grits to have a kind of creamy consistency. Add more water if they are too thick. Stir in 1 tsp of the margarine, keep warm.

Fry bacon in a nonstick pan until crispy. Put on paper towel to cool. IN THE SAME PAN THE BACON WAS IN add the green beans and water. Let cook until as evaporated by 75%. When the beans are bright green, put in a serving bowl and crumble bacon over the beans. Keep warm and set aside

Put two tablespoons of margarine in a bowl with dried parsley, oregano, and half of the garlic clove. Microwave for 30 seconds, set aside.

Put the shrimp in a nonstick pan sprayed with olive oil spray (like Pam). Season as desired. When shrimp is almost done, put the remaining vegetable broth in to deglaze the pan. Shrimp is done when pink and opaque, coiled up.

Place a cup of grits on a plate, then half of the shrimp, and then 1 tablespoon of the melted margarine. Serve with green beans.
