I created this recipe as a great alternative to Oatmeal, hence the Faux-Meal. I do not eat grains/gluten and wanted an alternative to one of my favorite breakfasts. I replaced the oatmeal with a healthier alternative, cauliflower. I also do not eat dairy and replaced it with coconut milk. This is a great alternative for anyone with Ulcerative Colitis, IBD, Celiacs, or Lactose Intolerance.
