Low-Carb Mashed Potato Substitute

I lost 70 lbs on a low-carb diet and really missed having mashed potatoes. This is a great substitute (especially if you like cauliflower) since it when mashed it is the same consistency as mashed potatoes.

I'm sorry,i,too went to ww,and I tried this and it doesn't work for me,i didn't like it at all,i'd rather just eat the cauliflower and forget trying to make it taste like mashed potatoes,because you can't.
