"Cauli-oats" Breakfast Bowls

Eat Healthy

Wake up your taste buds with this fresh take on the basic breakfast bowl.

Cauliflower proves its ability yet again to be a power player in the produce aisle, this time around taking the place of oats in this sweetly satisfying dish.

Full of filling fiber, cauliflower also contains an impressive line-up of nutrients. One cup of cauliflower contains nearly 80 percent of your vitamin C needs for the day, making it a smarter choice for that morning glass of OJ.

Cauliflower also is rich in vitamins K and B6, as well as folate, potassium and a group of antioxidants shown to protect against chronic diseases, including heart disease and cancer.

Fresh apples and blueberries add extra vitamins, antioxidants and a hint of natural sweetness, while walnuts and tahini – a paste made from ground sesame seeds – provide protein to make this bowl a powerful way to start your day.

 

 Would you believe there's nearly a whole head of cauliflower in this bowl? Don't worry, your taste buds will never know ...
