Mock Mashed Potatoes (Cauliflower)

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by JaneinRI

I made this last night for a potluck at the home of a low-carbing friend. I think it's pretty tasty, but what wouldn't taste good with an entire stick of butter and a full cup of sour cream?

I used fat free sour cream to reduce the fat. It seemed to me that it needed lots of salt though. I will make this again but I think that I'll make it in the food processor so that it is more the consistency of mashed potatoes...mine seemed to be too much just a bunch of lumps.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 heads cauliflower
  • 12 cup butter, softened or melted

  1. Steam cauliflower thoroughly, until falling-apart soft.
  2. Drain in a colander, and cut away the stalk.
  3. Return to pan, add butter and mash until smooth.
