Cauliflower Mash Potatoes

"I love mashed potatoes and don't think this replaces them, but it's a different and nice treatment of the vegetable. I merely mashed the cauliflower and other ingredients with a potato masher instead of using a blender, so my version may be a bit more chunky than intended."


1 head Cauliflower
1 tablespoon Cream cheese
2 tablespoon Unsalted butter
2 cloves Garlic
1/4 cup Parmesan
Salt; to taste
Pepper; to taste

Original recipe makes 4 Servings



Set a stockpot of water to boil over high heat. Clean and cut cauliflower into small pieces. Boil cauliflower for about 6 minutes, or until well done. Drain well. Pat cooked cauliflower very dry between several layers of paper towels. In a bowl with an immersion blender, or in a food processor, puree the hot cauliflower with the cream cheese, butter, Parmesan, garlic, salt and pepper until almost smooth

Easy, yummy way to add more veggies to dinner.

Great and healthy alternative to potatoes! Only needs one clove of garlic. I used two large ones and it was a little much. Very yummy!

worked great, as w/ other comments; boil til tender enough to mash. Probs longer than 6. Added crispy fried onions as a garnish and it 'made the dish'.

The family really liked them, so I'd definitely make them again! I would do 2 small cloves or 1 large clove of garlic. To change it up flavor-wise, a dash of nutmeg would work nicely.

I usually like cauliflower but this turned out very bitter for some reason.

Tasted great. Easy to make. To mash you must boil lot longer than 6 min

Amazing!!! I used garlic salt instead of cloves and also added a little heavy whipping cream!! It was soooo good and was a huge success at Thanksgiving dinner!! Even over the mashed potatoes!!
