    Big Mike2's Note:

    Is it pureed cauliflower or garlic mashed potatoes? First time out, my wife couldn't tell it wasn't potato until I told her...

      Wow! This was sooo delicious! While I don't think you could "fool" too many people and call these potatoes, this was still an extremely tasty side dish and a fantastic alternative to potatoes. I tried a recipe similar to this when I was on the South Beach Diet and it was severely lacking in flavor, but this one was the exact opposite. It had great texture as well - nice and thick. I used 1/3 less fat cream cheese and also mixed in some light sour cream. Before serving, I topped it with a dollop of Smart Balance spread. Yummy Yummy! Thanks for sharing this outstanding recipe.

      Great flavor! I like my potatoes a little thicker, but I will make these again and take time to dry the cauliflower - maybe that will help with the texture. Overall great dish.

      I found this to be a very good recipe, but lacking a bit in body, so I added a little more cheese and half a can of white navy beans which helped with texture,body and taste. Thank you for the recipe.
