Love 'em, but I will add a starch to the meal, too. All recipes are pre-approved for the NO S Diet. I usually add a T. of yeast powder. Adds more chicken flavor and a little protein. Worth it. By the way, you don't need a steamer. You can put the whole head in a pot it will fit in and add an inch of water. Heat and add water until the head is soft. I often pressure cook mine.

:) This came out great. I'm using it instead of mashed potatoes in my shepherd's pie.

SO GOOD! I mashed it up with a Laughing Cow wedge, a little chicken broth, a little butter and a little sour cream. Put some shredded cheddar on top before baking. YUMMY!

I think based on the fact that a head of cauliflower weight about a pound, give or take, that the serving sizes are about 4 OZ each or about 1/2 cup.

Love Mashed Cauliflower! I boil it in water, and add a very small amount of non-fat milk to help make it creamier, salt and fresh cracked pepper. Next time I will try adding the garlic...sounds yummy!

Will try this - but I cream my cauliflower with a hand mixer so it's smooth, add some cream and top with a little shredded cheddar! Just like creamed potatoes. yum!

My husband loves it and so do I. I don't use cheese, I just season to taste and I do use a little real butter. So good.

This recipe is pretty darn good. The servings are a little large. Even if the calories are low, it is hard to finish a full serving. And not sure why everyone is freaking out about the serving size. The recipe clearly states four servings. It is pretty easy to divide the mixture into four equal parts.
