Preparing the Oatmeal

Cooking It up

  • 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.

I highly suggest fermenting your oats beforehand. This boosts nutrition and flavour. I do this with all of the grains I eat, and it’s easy.
The reason is to reduce antinutrients like phytic acid and enzyme inhibitors present in all raw grains and seeds. In high amounts, these can have harmful effects, prevent nutrient uptake (especially minerals), and impair digestion.

The benefits are evident for those don’t digest grains well, but can tolerate them when properly prepared. At least soaking grains (think of “overnight oats”) will help, too, but isn’t optimal.
