Go easy on the cheese to stick to Fat Flush....but its a hard cheese so its not too bad.
There is actually a different but similar recipe for mashed cauliflower in the Fat Flush Cookbook that I just got. Haven't tried it yet.
Very good, I make it quite often as a side dish in place of mashed potatoes. I sometimes don't even add the cheese or garlic and we will put some heart healthy "butter" on top instead.

If you like cauliflower, you should like this. I thought it was great. It filled me up and tasted very good. I think it needs a little salt to taste.

Can I use Cream of Mushroom instead of chicken broth for South Beach Diet Phase 1?

Loved it! As I mashed the cauliflower my daughter thought I was Nuts, until she took a bite. I will be making this again.
