Used lower calorie versions of sour cream and the cream cheese, which brought total down to 42 calories per 1/2 cup serving. Also use this recipe for shepherds pie, etc.

I used low fat cream cheese and low fat sour cream. I grated garlic into it along with some finely chopped spring onions for a bite. Submitted by:

Potatoes have an undeserved bad reputation. They are loaded with potassium and fiber. Caulilflower is very nutritious to0... this recipe might look like mashed potatoes, but it certainly does not taste the same.

Had made this before and it was good but not spectacular. I added one mashed potato to bulk it up (for just a few more calories) and it was excellent! Submitted by:

This recipe sounds great and I will definitely be making it, but I just don't see how the calorie count is correct, especially for the sour cream and cream cheese. Submitted by:

We have been mixing these half and half with regular mashed potatoes to cut calories. They are a bit thinner in texture but very good. Submitted by:

I just made this and it is delicious. I used cottage cheese instead of sour cream and topped it with reduced fat cheddar cheese. My mom doesn't even like cauliflower and she loved it. Next time I'll add a little more salt and might use the chive cream cheese. Submitted by:

Very nice! I admit to liking to throw in a little cheddar cheese or bacon, but we made it as is - just used NO SALT substitute - and it went real with a simple chicken dinner we made. Submitted by:

Love it, family loves it. I didn't have cream cheese so I just used low-fat sour cream. Dh could barely tell that it wasn't all potato. And, it tastes lighter and whippier, while being low sodium low calorie etc. Submitted by:

I did this recipe, but I add greek yogurt instead. Adds some protein and it is delicious!. Submitted by:

This recipe tastes awesome. i substituted greek yogurt for sour cream and used onion and chive low fat cream cheese. It doesn't have the consistency of mashed potatoes though (even with using the hand mixer AND mashing)

Made this two times now and my hubby begs for it once a wk now. I added half a cup of non fat cottage cheese, use non fat sour cream and non fat cream cheese and blend the mixture in a blender. sprinkled with a tiny bit cheese. Turns out fantastic! Thanks so much for the recipe. Submitted by:

Recipe turned out a bit dry. Also seems important to use a mixer/blender rather than just a potato masher to get more "mashed potato" consistency. Think no-fat cottage cheese instead of sour cream would increase creaminess and protein. Submitted by:

I found this required a fair amount of salt added (at least 1/4 teaspoon) which I am trying to avoid. I would make this recipe again but maybe suggest to those on low-sodium diets like me to tweak with real onion and garlic to give it a boost. I think a bit of horseradish would be good too.

I use Light Cheese wedges, non-fat greek yogurt, minced garlic, salt, pepper and siracha sauce if I want it spicy! I puree in the Food Processor for a smoother texture. I place in individual ramekins and top with a little parmesan cheese bf baking. Doubles as grits! Think Shrimp & Grits!

Thank you for posting this recipe. My husband and I enjoyed it, although we both agreed that we would do something a little different next time.
I think I'll cook 1 or 2 potatoes and mash them with the cauliflower. A little more calories, but more to our liking.

Used light sour cream & neufchatel cheese to save on fat & calories. Also used a hand mixer to get a more airy texture. Submitted by:

I used fat free sour cream and cream cheese, which I think made it a little more bland. But I still enjoyed it with a little salt and pepper :) Submitted by:

Loved this and can't wait to make again. I changed a few ingredients to make it slightly lower in calories and fat. I used low fat sour cream and reduced fat cream Cheese. I used a 1/4 cup chopped onion and real garlic instead of the powers. MMMmmmmm!!! Submitted by:
