I made cauliflower mashed potatoes tonight for the first time.  I just steamed the cauliflower and used a stick blender to mash it.  Added a little butter, almond milk, salt and pepper.  Used it a s a substitute for the spaghetti my family was eating with meatballs.  Put some red sauce (low carb of course) on it and it was delicious and satisfying.

I found that the recipe with Cream Cheese tasted the best.  It really had the closest consistency to Mashed Potatoes that I have made.  I added a little minced garlic to my melted butter, then also stirred in Shredded Cheddar cheese, so it tastes a lot like Cheesy Potatoes!  ;D

Umpa and I have added Feta cheese to the original recipe and have been delighted with the result. We've also loaded it up with Cheddar cheese and baked it in individual baking dishes for twice baked "potatoes"....excellent!!

Moral to the story? Get creative to create your passed on family recipes :)

I wanted to try this caulimash since I first saw it but it wasn't until I noticed that mdanziger used a stick blender to prepare his that I finally decided to give it a try.  Right now the cauliflower is steaming away nicely and I am patiently waiting to get started! Will post taste and results later.

Hello Phoenix welcome to the family! I love all the caulimash recipes, real comfort food. Buy a jar of Heinz beef gravy in a jar, fry up a nice thick burger and coat it well with the gravy, serve over caulimash with a bit more gravy........Yummy :)

You can put sour cream in it. I haven't tried it with cream cheese, but it seems that it would be good...Has anyone else tried it with cream cheese?



I make them wth cream cheese and butter all the time. I like mayo but the cali mash as I call it just taste better in it.
