  • Knife or grate or food proccesor fitted with the S blade
  • Cutting board
  • Large pan or wok
  • Spatula


  • 1 Head Cauliflower
  • 2-3 Bananas (Really ripe is best)
  • 1 tin Coconut milk (I used 300 ML)
  • 3 TBspn Coconut oil
  • 3-4 TBspn Rasberries (Optional)
  • Drizzle Honey or maple syrup (Optional)


  • Cut the leaves off your cauliflower
  • Cut the cauliflower, including the stem, into fine pieces. You can use a knife for this, grate it on a grater or pulse in a food processor fitted with the S blade.
    I used the knife because it is less washing up, but be warned that your kitchen bench will be full of cauliflower when you are done.
  • Add the 3 tbspn of coconut oil into a big pan or wok and bake the raw cauliflower pieces until they are golden and toasted.
    This takes a while, but this step definitely adds a lot of toasted flavour, so I highly recommend you do this.
  • When golden, add in the coconut milk and stir.
    Add in as much or as little as you like. If you like your porridge a little more runny, add more coconut milk. If you like it thicker, simply use less.
    I used 300 ml.
  • Peel and slice the bananas and add to the porridge.
    First, add in 2. Stir and taste. If you want more banana, simply add in a third.
    Cook this for a minute or two.
  • Add to a bowl and top with raspberries.
    If you like, you can also add a drizzle of honey or maple syrup.


This recipe serves two (depending on the size of your cauliflower of course). 
If you have leftovers, just put them in a container and keep in the fridge. When you want it, you can eat it cold or reheat on the stove.
