When I say Cauliflower, you probably think about a boring plate of steamed white veggies accompanied by potatoes and a piece of meat. Don’t get me wrong, that’s a dish you would have found on our kitchen table when I was a little girl. It was definitely not my favourite food back then. Nowadays, most of the foods on my kitchen table are veggies. It’s funny how your taste changes the older you get.
Cauliflower! Recently, I started to experiment with this beautiful and versatile veggie. Now I can eat a whole cauliflower in one day. Starting with a nice cauliflower-based breakfast meal, then using it in a salad for lunch or to create a delicious pizza in the evening. Pizza….from Cauliflower!? Absolutely I say! But that is not what this blog post is about. Today we’re going to make my almost famous breakfast porridge!
You’ll need a Cauliflower and a sharp knife:
300 grams of cauliflower cut into pieces
100 ml plantbased milk
25 gr vanilla whey ( I use Isolaat Perfection, Body&Fit)
dash (and another dash) of cinnamon
pinch of salt
Place the cauliflower in a saucepan and boil for 10 minutes. When the cauliflower is soft enough to mash, put it all together in a blender and blend until you have a nice and creamy texture. Add the milk, cinnamon, salt and protein and mix well.
Serve your creamy caulifower in a bowl and top it up with the banana and another dash of cinnamon. If you don’t like banana, substitute your favourite fruit or even sprinkle it with my homemade coconut granola ( previous post).
