    Zenmaria's Note:

    My husband doesn't like to eat starchy food so I found this recipe on fatfreevegan.com and modified it a bit. This is an excellent replacement for mashed potatoes. I like this with Vegan Fat Free Lentil & Corn Patties with vegan gravy and either broccoli or green beans.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cook frozen cauliflower by following the package directions. Cook until it is very well done (soft!) approximately 8-10 minutes. (You may also use 1 pound of fresh cauliflower). Put into a colander and drain.
    2. 2
      While cauliflower is cooking, combine soy milk, garlic, water, and seasonings, in small saucepan over medium heat. When it reaches a boil, add the cornstarch/water mixture, stirring constantly until thickened. Set aside for next step.
    3. 3
      When cauliflower is cool enough for you to handle, squeeze as much water out of it as possible. (Put it into a colander and pressed it with the back of a big spoon). Next, put the cauliflower into a food processor and whir on high for a minute or just mash with a fork. Add the sauce from step 2. Process/stir until the cauliflower is creamy and smooth.
    4. 4
      Check the consistency. If it is too thick for you, add a tiny bit of soymilk, mix, and check again. Too much liquid and you will end up with soup!
    5. 5
      Add additional seasoning to taste. Serve hot/warm. You may need to heat it quickly in the microwave before serving.

      This is an excellent recipe. I also steamed the cauliflower instead of boiling. My cauliflower was small so I instinctively and correctly added the milk mixture to the cauliflower incrementally instead of adding the entire liquid to the cauliflower.

      Excellent! I am trying to lose weight on Weight Watchers' "point" system and this is a wonderful "0 points" side dish. Really hits the spot as a mashed potato substitute.

      I'm not vegan, but am always looking ways to reduce calories in my diet so I tried this recipe. The sauce was great in creating a creamy consistency. I did use almond milk instead of soy and par boiled then roasted the cauliflower and was very happy with the results. I want to try the sauce in mashed potatoes.
