This pairs well with spicy shrimp or chicken. You also can kick this up a notch by adding ¼ teaspoon of red pepper flakes.


  • 1 2-pound head of cauliflower, washed, trimmed, and chopped into florets
  • 1½ cups of unsweetened non-dairy milk (almond, cashew or coconut)
  • 1 tbsp coconut, avocado or olive oil
  • ⅓ cup nutritional yeast OR ½ cup crumbled goat cheese
  • Sea salt
  • Ground pepper


  • Depending on the size of your food processor, place about half of the cauliflower into the bowl and pulse until it breaks down into rice-sized grains. Remove and repeat until all the cauliflower has been minced.
  • Place in a medium saucepan along with the milk, oil, ½ tsp salt and several generous “grinds” of pepper.
  • Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Stirring frequently, simmer for about 10-12 minutes until the mixture is smooth and looks like grits.
  • Stir in the nutritional  yeast or the cheese.
  • Taste and add more salt/pepper if needed.
