Mashed Cauliflower

Coliflor292Mashed cauliflower is a fantastic side dish and a great alternative to mashed potatoes. I am not a huge cauliflower fan, but I love this recipe. This is without a doubt the best cauliflower dish I have ever tried.

This is a simple and easy side dish. Don’t you just love that kind of recipe?

    I used to eat mashed cauliflower by the truck load when I was doing the Atkins Diet back in early 2000. I wish I had your recipe back then. This is way more gourmet and tastier looking than my boiled cauliflower head mashed up with a chicken bouillon cube. :)

    LOL – When I first saw mashed cauliflower I thought it was going to be the “skinny recipe” made light for healthy new year’s resolutions :D This sounds way better than that version!

    Happy New Year Erica!

    We love cauliflowers, have them at least once a week. However I have never prepared it in this lines. Very different and flavorful.
