This might look like a complicated recipe, but the brilliance of it is that you can make the parts separately. The pickled onions last up to two weeks in the fridge, go well with almost everything, and really add color and kick to any dish.
The grits are incredibly quick to make, and the charred broccoli is also delicious on its own as a side dish. Individually, each dish probably takes fewer than 15 minutes to prepare, so don’t think of this as a single recipe but rather three delicious recipes for the price of one. Enjoy!
