A couple of student entrepreneurs wanted to promote healthier eating on the University of Michigan campus and across the community. Therefore, Jacqueline Sun and Taylor Hurley joined forces to create Brassi, a brand of cauliflower oatmeal, which can be blended into a drink or used as a base for bowls or overnight oats.
Hurley made her own recipes of overnight oats, using cauliflower, oats and other flavored ingredients as a base. However, it still took several steps. Hurley and Sun came together on a compounded product that can conveniently be stored, and named it after brassica oleracea, a type of cauliflower, Sun said. Each package retails for $7.99 and offers six servings. They come in an apple and spice and cacao and coconut flavors.
