    I'm not big on cauliflower, but these faux mashed potato recipes sound good. I got them from a discussion group, and thought I'd share them with my fellow low-carbers!

    Faux Mashed Potatoes:

    Trim a head of cauliflower, cut it into equal pieces. Steam or nuke it
    it's more than al dente but not soft and mushy. Break it into the
    pieces you can, then throw it into a food processer or blender. For one
    of trimmed cauliflower I use 1/4 cup butter and a teaspoon of salt.
    Whip it
    until it looks like mashed potatoes. Then store it in a sealed
    container in
    the refrigerator, take out individual portions and nuke 'em!

    Variation: Add grated cheddar cheese, crumbled bacon, a beaten egg and
    in a casserole dish. Broil until top is browned.

    Cheesey Smashed Cauliflower:

    2 heads fresh cauliflower, steamed until tender and mashed
    8 ounces cream cheese, softened
    2 cups sour cream
    3 tablespoons heavy cream
    2 cups grated cheddar cheese
    1/4 to 1/2 cups diced sauteed onions (optional)
    1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (optional)
    Mash all ingredients together and place in a buttered 9X12" casserole
    baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes or until cheese is
    completely melted and the casserole is heated through. Recipe can be
    doubled. Reheats well.

    Serves 16 @ 2.6 grams carbohydrate per serving.

    Enjoy!!! :heartpump:

    Great recipe Ivie, thank you.

    I also saw a sheperd's pie recipe using faux mashed potatos. And a fried rice recipe using cauliflower.

    It's a great idea!!
