"I substituted this dish for mashed potatoes as a low-carb alternative, and my husband said it was 'rockin' good.' Flavors of Parmesan, garlic, and chives brought cauliflower to a new level and we didn't miss the potatoes. This goes well with a nice grilled steak or London broil."

  2. Remove garlic cloves and smash with a fork; place smashed garlic with cauliflower into a pot.
  3. Smash butter and chives into cauliflower and garlic with a fork or potato masher until smooth.
  4. Stir light cream into smashed cauliflower mixture.
  5. Sprinkle Parmesan-Reggiano cheese onto cauliflower mixture; season with salt and black pepper.
  6. Cook the cauliflower mixture over low heat to absorb the cream and melt the butter, about 12 minutes.

My son does not eat vegetables and he ate these "imitation mashed potatoes".

Easy to make! My husband and 18 yr old daughter loved them, she even thought they were mashed potatoes. I used fresh cauliflower and fresh grated parmesan cheese. Will make again!

This recipe is awesome. I used roasted garlic, half n half instead of light cream, and I halved the amount of bitter... It tasted amazing.

So good! Used fresh cauliflower and I didn't have garlic cloves so I subbed garlic powder and garlic salt. I also added some Tony's Sacherie's and parsley to it. I will definitely make this regu...

Yummy! My son is a wrestler and only eats low carb during the season so I'm always looking for good side dishes to replace the usual potatoes or rice. This was perfect! I used fresh cauliflow...
