    c0dphish's Note:

    This is a low-carb stand-in for mashed potatoes. The spices and cream that are added to steamed and pureed cauliflower give this dish the taste, texture and appearance of mashed potatoes. Serve this up with any entrée that goes well with mashed potatoes, and I swear you'll never miss the spuds.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Divide a head of cauliflower into florets that are all roughly the same size.
    2. 2
      Steam cauliflower pieces over boiling water (15 to 20 minutes), or until the cauliflower is tender.
    3. 3
      Drain the cauliflower and toss it in a bowl of ice water to bring the cooking process to a screeching halt.
    4. 4
      When the cauliflower has cooled, put the florets in a food processor along with 1/2 cup of water.
    5. 5
      Puree the cauliflower on high speed until smooth, but with some very small pieces of cauliflower remaining in the mix for just a bit of texture.
    6. 6
      Pour all of the pureed cauliflower into a medium sauce pan.
    7. 7
      Dissolve the corn starch in the remaining 1/4 cup of water and add the solution to the cauliflower.
    8. 8
      Add the cream, salt, white pepper, garlic powder and onion powder to the cauliflower and stir.
    9. 9
      Set the saucepan over medium heat and cook, stirring often, for 5 to 10 minutes, or until thick.

      This was so good. I had only ever had mashed cauliflower at Ruby Tuesday(how sad is that) But I was determined to find a recipe that was the same as Ruby Tuesdays. This was super super good. Only problem with the recipe was you neglected to mention I would eat so much by myself, I should haev bought two heads of cauliflower.

      I'm so glad I tried this recipe! I've been watching the craze over mashed cauliflower rage since this whole lo-carb fade came in to play and admit that I've been mildly intrigued. DH and I are not cauliflower lovers at all, but thought I'd try this as a once-in-a-while substitute to the real thing. I'll be honest and say they do have the consistency of grits and do not taste anything like real mashed potatoes but they do have a nice flavor to them and I'll definitely be making this again. I used skim milk and just had to cook until it thickened up. Thanks for posting KelBel!
