    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! - 5/8/09

    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. - 1/4/08

    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 - 1/6/08

    I have made this twice now.The first time, I SIMMERED FRESH cauliflower. I didn't have Half n Half, so I used skim milk and grated a little cheese in. The second time, I STEAMED FROZEN cauliflower, and used FF Half n Half with a bit of grated cheese. I liked FRESH best. - 3/12/08

    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!! - 1/9/08
