    Absolutely delicious! I’ve been craving it ever since the first time i made it. The only changes I made were: I used 1 cup or so water with 1 teaspoon better than bullion vegetable base to steam the cauliflower with 1 clove coarsely chopped garlic. The 3 minute rest and re-mash made it wonderfully creamy. Even my husband, who dislikes vegetables, took second helpings.

    I saved the bullion when draining and drank it as soup.

    Most mashed cauliflower recipes call for cream cheese. I don’t like the flavor cream cheese gives it. So I was very happy to find this simple and delicious recipe
