We really enjoyed this! I halved the sugar, tho. I also used my hand-held immersion blender to puree, so it had some nice texture to it. I may try the idea of adding some blue cheese as another reviewer did next time. Thanks for posting, Abby.

This is a lovely recipe. It really is a proper dish, very tasty, even my husband, who does not like any experiments with low-calorie recipes, thought it was very good and deserved to become part of our menu even thought it was such a healthy dish!

this was an exellent suprise. when i went looking for cauliflower mash i had resigned myself to bad or bland; a futile sift through chedar cheese and ranch dressing inspired 'substitutes' for potato (which i dont much care for). this recipe stands on its own as a dish rather than excusing crippled taste with notions of other vegetables. many thanks. i didnt use the total amout of sugar as i ran out, and added a couple tablespoons of blue cheese to the mix. quartered the stock and didnt puree completely to leave texture and viola!
