I made this with only cauliflower. I wanted to like it but it really doesn't have the mouth "feel" of real mashed potatoes. Hubby said he would like to try it mixed with some potatoes. I agree although as written I think it can work if you had a rich gravy to pour over the top. I just served it with butter on top. I steamed the cauli in the microwave and used 3 large cloves of garlic which I had roasted over a frying pan. Any more would have been too much IMO.
