Sunday morning is porridge morning. After a long workout, I crave something hearty and nutritious. In the winter, that comes in the form of porridge. Today, I was wanting something extra decadent, and got creative. This sweet, thick, and protein-packed breakfast was a great way to start my day.
Creme Brûlée is a French dessert, consisting of rich custard with a burnt, caramelized sugar topping. It is one of my favorite desserts because of its creamy texture and lovely vanilla flavor. Obviously, this dessert was my inspiration for my Banana Brûlée porridge.
There are certainly a couple unique aspects about this breakfast bowl. 1) I used rice cauliflower, which I often mix this in with my overnight oats because it is a great way to add veggies and volume to my breakfast. In this recipe especially, you cannot taste it at all! The sweet vanilla flavor overwhelms the bland cauliflower and since the veggie is cooked, it adds to the already super fluffy texture of the porridge.
2) I added eggs! The idea of adding eggs to my sweet breakfast bowls has been on my mind for a while now. Eggs are such a wonderful source of protein and don’t have distinct flavor. Since Creme Brûlée is made with eggs as a base, it seemed appropriate to try them in this dish. I was not disappointed. The eggs added so much fluff to the porridge and I felt so satisfied after finishing my bowl.
