Steamed Mashed Cauliflower

Steamed Mashed Cauliflower

"Steamed head of cauliflower without butter, milk, extra calories, or carbs. Very light, very tasty. My 12-year-old child is very picky, but absolutely loves my faux mashed potatoes as they are very similar in texture and taste to the real thing. As an extra we've even added roasted garlic cloves. Heavenly!"

I liked the taste and texture. I may try to add garlic and onion powder to spiff up some tasting next time.

I make this all the time! My husband even prefers it to the Carb Loaded potatoes. I add a teaspoon of Brown Gravy Powder, 1/2 tsp Onion Powder and 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder to it for that real potat...

You don't need a head of fresh cauliflower. Frozen florets work fine. I don't use goat cheese, but fat-free (or low-fat) cream cheese instead. I also add a few herbs and minced onion when microw...

Great recipe! I love mashed potatoes but don't need the starch... this is a great compromise!

I have made a version of this with cream cheese but I will have to try it with the goat cheese. It will be a healthier alternative.
