9. Cauliflower porridge with apple, blackberry and cocoa filling

Using cauliflower as a substitute for rice or cereal flakes in different recipes works great, although depending on the recipe, it may require additional flavoring. In this cauliflower porridge with apple, blackberry and cocoa filling from Solla Eiriksdottir, use cauliflower instead of oats or other cereal flakes. To keep the cauliflower flavor from coming out, I use pandan leaves, which have this fantastic scent, and work magic in both sweet and savory dishes. They give a wonderful aroma of vanilla and coconut with a hint of grass. Native to South India, Southeast Asia, Indonesia and Sri Lanka, they are used to sweeten or flavor dishes in a simple way. You can find them both fresh and frozen at Asian food stores, but if you can’t get them, use coconut milk as a plant milk base and add an extra teaspoon of vanilla extract. .
