Call me crazy, but mashed cauliflower is my new favorite food. Being on the South Beach Diet, one of the favorite things to do is to find substitutes for old favorites like pancakes, chessecake and mashed potaoes.
I first tried the mashed cauliflower about 6 months ago. I didn't like it. I was amazed people actually ate this. A couple of tips. 1~use fresh frozen cauliflower. The cauliflower I used was circa 1998. VERY bad. 2~steam, rather than boil, the cauliflower. 3~use plenty of "I can't believe it's not butter." Use fresh butter, not the stick that has been sitting next to the raw onion for 2 weeks.
I tried it again last week, using these tips. It is very good. Now mind you, it will NEVER take the place of mashed potatoes, the texture is just not the same, but it is very tasty. I made some more tonight, ate it with a chicken breast. With my stomach playing games with me, I have been sticking to soft, non spicy foods. I better lose some weight from all this mess!!
