My batch came out really soupy, so I ran with it and called it cauliflower soup. Warming and comforting on a rainy evening.

My kids liked it, and my oldest hates cauliflower!

I made this and it was great. It was really hard finding 350 ovens to cook in. But I managed to get my town together and get the task done ! Mass cooking is my favorite!

These were delicious! My husband had no idea they were actually cauliflower and wants these instead of mashed potatoes from now on! I didn't have to add the flakes either - they were perfect without!

I could definitely tell this was cauliflower. The consistency was a little runny for my taste (I even added less milk) I'll try it again but I'll take others suggestions of steaming not boiling and adding some real potatoes for better texture.

Fabulous. Did not add the potato flakes as I did not have any. This is THE best way to ear cauliflower.

Simple to make great to eat.

Wow... I didn't even need the potatoes. Fantastic and got quite a kick from the pepper and tapatio I added.

Delicious! I added nutritional yeast for a cheesy flavor, no potatoe flakes. Definitely saving this one!

Love this recipe! I added Boursin Cheese (Garlic and Herb) to the mash and it was fabulous!

Not bad! Definitely couldn't tell it was cauliflower! Next time I will cut back on the pepper.

Yummy! A good blender is a must!

I didn't use margarine or potato flakes. These are a good alternative, but the consistency is a little weird. Also, they get cold really fast. I'll make again since I'm eating low carb, but if not real potatoes are best.

sooo good. used real potato and a head of garlic and garlic salt.

This was good. I had a hard time pureeing it for some reason, need a stronger blender I guess.

FANTABULOUS!!! my guests were impressed and I didn't even put potato flakes

A good alternative to the all carbs indeed. I like it, my family liked it, and I used powdered milk to thicken and a creamer base to it. Worked well.

Tasted just like mashed potatoes! My husband, 2 yr old, and 3 yr old loved it.

Diagnosed as prediabetic. Mashed potatoes were one my favorite foods. This recipe has become one of the anchors of my diet.

Do NOT boil for this recipe . Cauliflower is like a sponge . I only ever steam ours for about 10 min. Try coarsely chopping in a FP and lightly stir fry or nuke until just tender . You will have a much more flavorful and drier consistency. Cheers

Surprising how much this recipe is like mashed potatoes! Good flavor and very easy to prepare.

Once this was all said and done I added a little bit of Garlic salt and for me this really finished it off nicely.
