I’m officially off my veggie rocker. Or really it’s cauliflower. I am cauliflower obsessed! I’m obsessed with finding creative and inventive ways to use cauliflower and I cannot be stopped. First it was Spanish Cauliflower Rice. Then as a Parmesan. THEN as Beer-Battered Tacos. Now as Cream of Wheat?! A Cauliflower FauxMeal: this is complete insanity. No, wait, don’t go anywhere! You might not be a believer yet but stick with me, okay?
Why cauliflower and why a Cauliflower FauxMeal? It’s the perfect option for those little ones who cannot eat grains or nuts. Completely free from both, this hot cereal gets its great texture from a banana and unsweetened applesauce; and it’s great flavor from a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg. Process it through a blender and you immediately have a creamy, fruit and veggie-packed breakfast, similar to Cream of Wheat. You won’t even KNOW there’s cauliflower in it!
This completely grain and nut free hot cereal is filled with unsuspecting fruits and veggies! Sneak some extra nutrition into your kids’ breakfast with this Cauliflower FauxMeal:Print
