Cauliflower Breakfast Oats

I’m super excited to introduce y’all to my intern and friend, Amanda. She’s pretty fantastic and also creative in the kitchen! It’s my birthday, so I’m taking the day off and she’s bringing you this lovely breakfast recipe!

If you haven’t heard of cauliflower oats, allow me to formally introduce you to the star of all breakfast foods. Cauliflower oats have become my most prized breakfast; I’m not joking when I say that I go to bed and have dreams of eating them when I wake up!
I first started experimenting with this concept when I realized my hunger wasn’t being satisfied by oats alone. Sure, I could have eaten something different for breakfast, but I wasn’t willing to completely give up my love for oatmeal. I began incorporating riced cauliflower to add volume, and as an extra bonus, a vegetable into my meal.
Just as you might be feeling right now, I was slightly skeptical if my concoction would even taste good… boy was I surprised after I took that first bite. I didn’t taste any cauliflower whatsoever, it added a certain creaminess to my oats and to my satisfaction, I felt full!
Pin for later:
Like Shannon mentioned above, this is Amanda! I am a Pre-nutrition and dietetics student at the University of Texas at San Antonio, as well as Shannon’s intern (and friend I’d like to think!). It is a great privilege for me to learn and work alongside such a wonderful dietitian and have the opportunity to write to her readers; I so look forward to sharing more recipes and blog posts with you all.
