“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.” - by cookin' social worker

"This was easy and delish! ...especially considering I wasn't overly precise on the measurements of the ingredients. I used fresh cauliflower instead of frozen and parmesan cheese in place of the parm-..." See morereggiano blend. My husband can't have mashed potatoes the way he used to be able to, and he told me this was a great substitute. Thanks for a wonderful recipe - this one goes in our regular rotation!"

"Wow! As a diabetic, I've been looking for something like this. The only thing I did different was to whip it up w/ a hand mixer. It was nice and fluffy. This is a versatile method for cauliflower...." See more You could change the cheese around or make it plain and substitute it for mashed potatoes."
