These were yummy Ducky. I used low fat sour cream and a little butter and they satified my craving for mashed potatoes without the carbs!

This recipe is very good. My husband loved it and he is very hard to please when it comes to food. I had just bought the cauliflower that morning and was going to steam it but then I found this recipe and decided to give it a try. I didn't have any half and half or sour cream so I just mashed it and gave it a bit of "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" (doin the South Beach) a few sprinkles of seasoning and it was great. Will surely try it as posted next time.

These were yummy. Not really like mashed potatoes to me but a very good cauliflower dish! I used fat free natural yoghurt in mine as that's what I use in mashed potatoes.

I was fully expecting this to taste like cauliflower, which I really don't like. It had surprisingly little cauliflower taste to it - I thought just a hint, my bf didn't notice any (but he likes cauliflower). The consistency was like mashed potatoes with too much milk/cream in it, so we're throwing around ideas to thicken it up slightly (like adding a small potato or something). I also found the dominant flavour was the sour cream, and while I like that, I'm thinking I'll try a bit of garlic and maybe some fresh herbs next time to round it out a bit. I gave it 5 stars because I was amazed how good it was, how little it tastes like cauliflower, and how many variations of it could be tried (such as adding other flavours, maybe a spoonful of salsa).

I used Smart Balance Light and Fat Free Sour Cream and these were fantastic... Next time I will double this. Thanks.

OMG! So yummy and super easy! I steamed the cauliflower in my steamer. Then I just tossed in unsalted butter and a bit of real sour cream and the ground pepper and salt, threw it all in the food processor and pulsed. Wow, super smooth, not too rich, just right and yummy! Will make this all the time now and will make with cheese too! THANKS!

I have to start by saying I am not one of those carb free people, I just want to try and add in healthy foods whenever possible. That being said I used equal parts cauliflower and potatoes to make a healthier dish and yum! I didnt use the nonfat sour cream since that isnt how I make my potatoes anyhow. I just added 1 tbsp butter and 1 tbsp margerine since it is lighter, and some low fat milk and spices and it was good to go. I could barely taste the cauliflower in it. I plan on using this idea from now on. I know potatoes are good for you in moderation so mixing them with cauliflower really doubles the benefit. Thanks for a great idea!

I wouldn't say they taste like mashed potatoes but we thought they were pretty good. I followed the recipe as written. I used the fat free half and half as my family isn't crazy about sour cream. I added some cheddar cheese and my family enjoyed this even more.
