Servings 4

  • 4 to 8 tbsp Kimchi add 1-2 tbsp per dish
  • 1-2 tsp Cajun Seasoning add to taste; also used to garnish
  • Pepper add to taste

  • 4 tbsp Parsley used to garnish

Cajun Grits

  • Bring water to a boil; slowly stir in grits; return to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and cook 4-5 minutes or to desired consistency, stirring occasionally.
  • Add butter and Cajun seasoning. Continue cooking 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally until butter has melted.
  • Add pepper to taste; add salt if desired (taste test before adding salt).

Scrambled Eggs

  • Beat the eggs until well blended, add 3/4 teaspoon salt and fresh ground black pepper into mixing bowl.
  • Melt butter or use cooking oil, swirl until bottom and sides of pan are evenly coated.
  • Add eggs cooking slowly, scraping them up with a rubber spatula occasionally, until most of the liquid has thickened and the eggs are soft, for about 7-10 minutes.


  • Plate equal portions of grits, created a foundation for the eggs and Kimchi. Add scrambled eggs on top, leaving about an 1 1/2 from edge of grits.
  • Add scrambled eggs, leaving approx. 1 1/2 inches from the edge of grits, allowing room for garnishing.
  • Place 1-2 tbsp of Kimchi to each plate, centering them on top of the eggs. Kimchi is recommended to be served cold, warm up in a skillet if preferred.
  • Add fresh ground black pepper, Cajun seasoning and parsley to garnish each dish. Optional: place avocado slices in a fanned layout.
