When I was growing up, my favorite breakfast was a bowl of Cream of Wheat with a ton of brown sugar and pancake syrup. It was a simple meal that unfortunately filled me up with gluten and sugar. I tend to avoid those things these days, but still hanker for the delicious breakfast some times.
Enter THIS RECIPE.
Oh my goodness. It's warm, lightly sweetened, and protein packed. What's the secret?
I hear cauliflower is the new kale, and for all the right reasons. It's versatile, cheap, and takes on the flavors it's mixed with without being overpowering. That makes it the perfect vegetable addition to breakfast.
You can find pre-riced cauliflower at pretty much any grocery store these days or you can make your own.
Seriously, this breakfast is so easy!
Paleo "Cream of Wheat"
2 c riced cauliflower
1 c unsweetened almond milk
1 large banana
1/2 c shredded coconut
2 scoops of collagen peptides, optional
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon
coconut oil or ghee
In a blender, combine all ingredients until smooth. Heat a large skillet on medium-high heat with enough cooking fat to coat the bottom of the pan. Pour blended mixture into skillet and cook for 5-7 minutes or until the cauliflower is fully, smooth, and most of the liquid is reduced. Top with cinnamon, coconut, maple syrup, honey, fruit, almond butter, or nuts!
