The brainchild of cauliflower-rice meets overnight oats, this hearty breakfast is a must-make. Lightly roasted with coconut oil, pure maple, and cinnamon, the cauliflower takes on a sweet and milky flavor. Its flavor is only elevated further with the addition of soaked oats, coconut milk, and coconut water. Though this porridge may smell a little cauliflower-y, don’t let that deter you. This make-ahead friendly and plant-based bowl is wonderfully creamy, sweet, and belly-filling in all the right ways.
