Low Carb Maple Almond Hot Cereal

I saw this recipe and thought NO WAY could this taste like oatmeal.  I mean really, cauliflower???  I know that you can make pizza crusts and breadsticks with cauliflower, but as a breakfast CEREAL?  I thought I could always make eggs if this was awful.  It was GREAT!!!  I thought it was more like a cream of wheat texture.  Picture is before I put the cream in it.
Low Carb Maple Almond Hot Cereal

1/3 cup cauliflower
1/4 cup roast almonds
2/3 cup water
pinch of salt or more if you used unsalted almonds
2 tablespoons xylitol Beth used 1 packet of sweet and low
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 teaspoon maple flavoring
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1/4 cup heavy cream
Grind the almonds and raw cauliflower together in the blender until the mixture is like crumbs. Beth used a magic bullet and added a little water to it.

Add the mixture to a pan and cover with water. Beth microwaved this  for 4 minutes---just use a bigger bowl than a 2 cup measuring cup(ask me how I know this)

Simmer, stirring constantly until the mixture is cooked and soft and the water is absorbed. You may need to add more water 1/4 cup at a time and cook it until it's absorbed to achieve the consistency of cooked oatmeal.

Add Xylitol, cinnamon, maple, vanilla, and butter. Mix well and taste for seasoning. Adjust flavor to make it exactly right for you.

Put the mixure in a bowl, add the cream and enjoy.
