Preparing this recipe as written is a waste of time. Instead, cook the cauliflower for longer, and dry it between layers of paper towels. Add a couple of wedges of laughing cow cheese (I like the garlic and herb kind), and some reduced fat parmesan. Add salt and black pepper and use a hand mixer to get the potato-like texture. The key is to make it taste good while still using South Beach-friendly ingredients.

My husband and I have been on the South Beach diet for about 7 months now. This recipe has become a staple in our home, although I don't quite make it this way. I boil the cauliflower until soft, drain it really well, and then mash it with a little bit of Smart Balance buttery spread, salt, and pepper. No, it doesn't have the same texture or even the same flavor of mashed potatoes, but it's still a very good and healthy alternative. You can melt a little bit of 2% cheddar cheese on top, or mix in a little sour cream and green onion for some variety. I've made brown gravy and put it over this - also very good. I can honestly say I do not crave mashed white potatoes anymore. This recipe is good enough for me.

First of all, there is NO substitute for mashed potatoes! The people who left bad reviews need to have lower expectations! This is a great recipe for people who are trying to take positive steps toward lifestyle changes in their diets! A great creamy consistency that goes well with the dishes that you would normally serve potatoes with. Added cream cheese, galic and onion, garnished with chives and a little dollop of low fat sourcream. Very tasty!
