    Very easy to make and very yummy. For those saying to lower the fat, on a true low carb diet you NEED fat. As thats what your body is getting your energy from since you are taking in minimal carbs. - 4/5/13

    Very tasty indeed. Even my highly-skeptical bf couldn't tell it was fake mashed potato! I agree, 1/8 of the recipe is a pretty serving so next time, I'll cut out some of the cream and cheese to reduce the calories, and cut a bigger slice (1/6th) per person. Really yummy dish! - 3/29/09

    This is great for low carb dieters, at who it's aimed, but since I make my Shepherd's Pie with just mashing the potatoes and putting on the top (no butter, cream or anything like that) for me, mine is actually a lower calorie, lower-fat version. This will be good for the rest of the family though - 9/5/07

    This was really good, great for me since I'm diabetic and the carbs are so low. - 8/10/14

    Fabulous!! I was skeptical about getting "creamy" cauliflower, but it was creamy and delicious!! Will definitely make this again, and can also just make the "mashed potatoes" as a side dish!! Great low carb dish! - 7/20/13
