Lately, I’ve been trying my hand at more paleo recipes. I am not paleo, but since researching more into the lifestyle, I’ve been limiting the amount of grains I eat more and more. And the thing is, it wasn’t that hard. Except at breakfast, where I was eating my very-much-loved, fluffy, overnight oatmeal.
Now, I’m very much a texture person and still wanted something grainy
Cue in the amazing substitute power of cauliflower…
And this is what you get!
Since it’s not as chunky though, I consider it more of a “cream of wheat.”
Oh well, close enough.
I should mention that this recipe is a BASE. Therefore I strongly encourage that you include some add-ins!
Paleo “Cream of Wheat”
1 and 1/2 cups raw cauliflower rice*
2/3 cup almond milk (coconut milk would probably taste good too!)
1 tbsp almond butter
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp salt
sweetener, to taste (I use about 1 tbsp of pure maple syrup)
Add-ins (optional): shredded coconut, coconut butter, more nut butter, bananas, berries, nuts, spices, etc. Get creative!
*To make cauliflower rice, pulse cauliflower florets in a food processor until it resembles rice
Combine cauliflower rice, milk, almond butter, cinnamon, vanilla, and salt in a small pot. Bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and let cook for 5 minutes, stirring often. Add in sweetener and add-ins (recommended!). To intensify flavor, let sit before eating.
