Cauliflower Egg White Oats

Cauliflower? In oatmeal? Yes, you read correctly. This is a heartier version of my "Clegg's" recipe ("oatmeal" made with riced cauliflower and egg whites). The addition of riced cauliflower provides volume, so it fills up your bowl and feels like you're eating more. You cannot taste the cauliflower!

                    





Cauliflower Egg White Oats

Ingredients:

1/3 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup riced cauliflower (Put cauliflower in your food processor until it becomes "rice-like")
2/3 cup almond milk (or any milk)
3 tablespoons egg whites
Stevia to taste

Directions:

1. Add oatmeal, cauliflower and milk to a small pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and cook until it starts to thicken. You can add any sweetener or extracts here. I like using different flavored stevia, coconut extract, etc.
2. Once it has started to thicken, gradually stir in your egg whites. Keep stirring so the egg whites don't get clumpy!
3. Once the egg whites are incorporated, remove from heat.
4. Top with your favorite oatmeal additions (fruit, nuts, nut butter, etc). You can also stir in some protein powder before you add the egg whites.
