    I also mix equal amounts of potatoes (with skin) and cauliflower, no sour cream, just skim milk. Not whipped, but "smashed". Garlic and pepper. Let others add their own butter. Everyone in my family who "hates" cauliflower, loves this. They have their vegies and always ask fo more - 11/17/10

    I love cauliflower and eat it often but by no stretch of the imagination is it anything like potatoes and is much better not mushed up into a soggy wet mess. The only similarity to potatoes I can see is that it is white, completely different taste and texture. - 11/11/14

    I cannot eat dairy and have used various recipes but this is very deliousious, using nondairy sour cream but my choice is non dairy cream cheese as it is just much more rich and delicious and about the same calories

    This is a MUST for a south beach style diet! I've always made mine with cauliflower, butter, onion and garlic powder, AND... add a can of white kidney beans to the cauliflower before you mash. It is the closest thing you'll ever get to real potatoes without the potatoes. Try it on Shepherds Pie!! - 6/9/11

    I really liked this recipe. So did several of our Thanksgiving dinner guests. Unfortunately my guys learned that it wasn't real potatoes, and did not consider cauliflower a good substitute for mashed potatoes. So, I ate their share. Yum!! - 11/26/10

    I LOVE these!!! I usually go to Ruby Tuesday just to get their faux mashed potatoes. Now I can make my own!!!

    I used fat free sour cream and calorie free spray butter. Still, they are great. Added garic, pepper, and salt of course. - 1/6/10

    Wow, this was actually pretty good! My 10-year old daughter LOVED it (I still haven't told her what it really was, NOT mashed potatoes) and my husband loved it too! - 2/3/09

    This is very good, but husband says to call it mashed cauliflower, and quit pretending, it's still "mashed cauliflower", hates people trying to fake some veggie to make it more palliative ! - 7/28/15

    This is a little bland for our family, but it works well as something to top off with a meat stew or something like that. 4 - 1 cup servings. Thanks for submitting. - 2/3/13

    We make faux mashed potatoes frequently but don't add the sour cream. Going to give this a try with some garlic, & dry out the cauliflower a bit. - 10/17/10

  • I've made this recipe so many times and it's very enjoyable. I even made the cauliflower soup which is excellent. Some people are just plain so mean and nasty with their comments and really should keep their mouths shut! Thanks for the recipe... - 11/27/15

  • *I have NOT tried this exact recipe - per se.*I have "mashed" cauliflower and added "salad" dressing sandwich spread low calorie of course", and maybe a tad of oleo INSTEAD of sour cream. *HOWEVER - mashed potatoes are mashed potatoes AND mashed cauliflower is mashed cauliflower. *Both good! - 11/16/15

  • I make this with non-dairy sour cream and it is really good! I like to add a little turmeric for color and some white pepper or black, depending on white I have on hand with a touch of garlic powder!! - 11/11/15

  • What this recipe omits is cut the cauliflower into florets so it will cook evenly enough to "rice", mash well and not taste like horseradish. The picture shows green onions and maybe bacon which aren't in the recipe! Need some truth in advertising here. - 11/11/14

  • Help! Mine turned out tasting just like horseradish! Way to strong and inedible. Maybe I didn't cook the cauliflower enough. Steamed it for about 25 minutes but inside was still a bit hard. Is there any way to save it or do I have to throw it all away? Thanks for your help! - 2/8/13
