I really enjoyed this. I tried this recipe for two reasons. I like cauliflower and I like garlic and parsley in my mashed potatoes. Don't know why I never thought to mix them all. Thanks for sharing this. I think for my taste I'd like an extra clove or so of garlic however really is good.

What a nice way to prepare the lowly cauliflower. Loved the lemon addition. :)
