Wash the cauliflower head and pat dry.
Rice the cauliflower. You can use a grater, NutriBullet (or another blender), food processor, or even a knife.
Add the cauliflower rice to a separate bowl with a tablespoon of water, cover with a small dish or plate, and cook for 4 minutes on high.
Meanwhile, add the milk to your oats and mix in.
Add diced garlic clove and herbs at this point if using. Stir.
Remove cooked cauliflower rice from the microwave using a tea towl or oven gloves, and carefully drain by pouring water out (keeping cauliflower in with the plate) or using a strainer.
Mix your oatmeal and cauliflower rice together. Grate cheese finely and stir through (simply stir in for cottage cheese).
Microwave on high for 3 minutes. Finally, season your creamy oatmeal with white or black pepper and a touch of salt to taste.
