Recipe by mersaydees
This is based on Dana Carpender's recipe from her book 500 Low-Carb Recipes. She is my all time favorite low-carb recipe writer -- she's the real deal. I make this for my husband and I in place of mashed potatoes and we love it. Dana recommends either adding a few cloves of sliced garlic to the cooking water or roasted garlic to the food processor when blending for "a little zing" -- I take the roasted garlic route myself.

These Fauxtatoes are delicious! They still tasted like cauliflower, but that's okay since I love cauliflower. But they are so incredibly creamy! They were a little thinner than mashed potatoes. Yummy and a great way to use cauliflower. Thanks for sharing!
- 1 large head cauliflower
- 1⁄3 cup cream
- 4 ounces cream cheese
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- salt and pepper
Directions See How It's Made
- Simmer the cauliflower in water with the cream added to it (necessary to keep the cauliflower sweet and displaying an appetizing color). Drain thoroughly when very tender.
- Place the warm cauliflower in a food processor with the cream cheese, butter, and salt and pepper to taste, and process until smooth, in batches if necessary.
