Recipe: Mais Moulin ak Zepina (Cornmeal and Spinach)

Mais Moulin or yellow grits as my husband like to call it is my favorite Haitian dish. I especially love the fact that you can eat it anytime of the day and there’s multiple ways to make it. I usually make mine with fish, eggs or I make it with spinach  when I need an iron boost.

Here is Haitian Cooking Recipe for Mais Moulin:

Mais Moulin (Cornmeal) is the Haitian equivalent of grits. With corn being a major staple in Haiti, it is typically served at breakfast with a side of avocados and served with Fish or eggs. Some even mix in black beans to give it an extra protein boost. In Haiti, many farmers start they day off with a huge plate to give them the energy they need to their work done. Here is our version of Mais Moulin with Avocados.


  • 2 Cups of Coarse Cornmeal
  • 2 Cups of chopped spinach
  • 1/2 tomato Diced
  • 1/2 Onion Diced
  • 1 tsp All purpose Seasoning
  • 1 Maggie Chicken Bouillon Cube
  • 1 tsp Salt (or to taste)
  • 2 Tbs Olive oil
  • 1 Tbs Tomato Paste
  • 2 Cups of Water
