Fauxtatoes/grits- mashed cauliflower
As creamy as the real thing, cauliflower provides a yummy stand-in for mashed potatoes, and even grits!"Great recipe and easy to modify to taste. Used low fat cream cheese and a couple splashes of chicken stock and it came out perfect. I even got my picky 5 year old to try it and declare she liked it! My hubby thought he was eating mashed potatoes. I like this so much, I'm not sure I'll ever go back to potatoes. " - YvetteinDecatur

Fauxtatoes/grits- mashed cauliflower Preparation
Steam or boil cauliflower until very soft (steaming retains more nutrients), about 10 minutes. Once soft, mash cauliflower with a potato masher or ricer, just like with mashed potatoes. Stir in butter, cream cheese, and cream; continue stirring over low heat, adding salt and pepper to taste. Add other mix-ins as you would with mashed potatoes. Leave consistency rough for grits, or whip/blend for a finer mashed consistency.
