Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

Delicious and creamy, just like mashed potatoes! I mash it with a potato ricer and add salt, pepper, garlic powder, and half and half to get it creamy.
I like it as an alternative to mashed potatoes.

I used fat free milk and I can't believe it's not butter and threw it in the blender and it turned out great. Some of my kids added Mrs. Dash to it and siad it was even better. Submitted by:

Variation based on smashed potatoes, about 20 calories less per serving:
Steam 1 lb cauliflower (frozen) using water with a bay leaf in it. Reserve about 1/4 cup of the water. Mash the cauliflower with 2T butter & 2 oz reduced fat cottage cheese, add bay water to desired consistency, S&P to taste

I really liked this but cooked the cauliflower in WAY too much water. After zipping it through the food processor I wrapped in cheese cloth to drain a bit. Mixed in 1/4 cup low fat sour cream, pat of butter, salt and pepper and reheated - delicious! Submitted by:

If you do want a little bit of the carbs you can also do half potatoes and half cauliflower. It is still very good and cuts the calories a little also. Submitted by:

When i make this I use 2 wedges of laughing cow herb and garlic and throw it in the food processor. I don't need any cream or butter. This cuts the already low calories by around half! Submitted by:

I have a twice baked cheesy mashed potato recipe that I'll bet I could modify to reduce the calories using this recipe. Thanks!!! Submitted by:

I, too, have been making this for a long time. The only thing I do differently is use low fat buttermilk and steam some garlic cloves with the cauliflower. I "mash" by throwing all in food processor. YUM!! Submitted by:

I am definitely a potato girl and this recipe helped take off the edge of my cravings for potatoes. I put fat free sour cream instead of the half and half. Just a suggestion Submitted by:

I've made this before and love it. A fairly large serving is so low in calories. For those of us on the Weight Watcher diet plan, it's very low point. I sometimes make it with 1/2 cup of fat free sour cream and 1/4 cup of grated parmesan cheese - also good. Submitted by:

We have a winner! I added a little more fat free half and half and used the blender to get a good consistancy. I tried mashing by hand the first time and it was too lumpy. Submitted by:
