“One should not attend even the end of the world without a good breakfast”, Robert A. Heinlein.

Mon Petit Chou fleur (My Little Cauliflower in french) is a delicious breakfast treat fueled with goodness. You could class it as porridge, cauliflower porridge but you will have to keep an open mind for this recipe. Recently, I have come under the opinion that cauliflower is the chameleon of the vegetable world. Reason being it can change for various dishes i.e. rice, mash, pizza, cous cous, porridge and soup. It has a neutral taste which allows you to play around with your favourite flavours. This recipe is gluten-free, wheat free, dairy free, meat free and sugar-free (if you use rice syrup). I really enjoyed it topped with raspberries, blueberries and macadamia nut butter mixed through it.  This recipe is really worth a shot.

Why Cauliflower?

One of the great aspects of this recipe is you are increasing your daily intake of cruciferous veggies. Cruciferous vegetables are associated with reducing the risk of some forms of cancer. Beside this cauliflower is a great source of potassium, vitamin C and has detoxification properties.

Ingredients

I Cauliflower Head (you will to turn into cauliflower rice)

1 cup Coconut Milk/Almond Milk (any milk of your choice can be used)

2 tablespoons Coconut Water/Filtered Water
