water to cover
shredded Cheddar cheese
salt and ground black pepper to taste
For low carb this is delish. I had about 1/2 cup leftover turkey broth and combined that with enough water to cover and cook the cauliflower. I increased the garlic to 4 cloves as we love garlic and added 2 bayleaves to the cooking liquid. I don't miss potatoes too much with this excellent substitute.
Give it a try you won't be disappointed.
This tasted good, just made, and was quick to make. It does taste slightly different than mashed potatoes. It also keeps some of the texture despite blending it in a Vitamix blender. I have had mashed potatoes where the potato was boiled with the garlic that went really well. I am not sure the cauliflower was heavy enough to not leave a lingering garlic flavor. Also, I have tried another similar recipe without the added dairy that tasted equally good but lighter. A bit of it got eaten with dinner, but the leftovers were never touched afterwards. It started to get slightly watery and the garlic taste was just a bit to strong by that point. It worked for dinner that evening though.
Creamy and delicious, just how you want it to be. I used the Grand Gourmet Pro blender and not a single lump....if u like it really smooth. Make sure not to use more butter or sour cream than it calls for might make it too thin. I also substituted plain Greek yogurt for the sour cream to save calories. Could use another clove of garlic to be honest.
I absolutely loved this recipe! I did not have high hopes for this being tasty, and was looking for a way to sneak veggies into my family's meals. My husband wouldn't try it, and my 18 month old didn't like it, but I sure did. I intend to make this for myself and have it around for lunches. It's very smooth and has great flavor. I used low fat sour cream and a bit less butter than called for. DELICIOUS!
BUH bye potatoes this was so delish that I am making it as often as I can. Thanks for this recipe!!
Quite tasty.. need lots of salt and pepper. I would suggest using an extra sharp cheddar.. next time I will and a few more cloves of garlic
This is delicious!!! My husband left out the bayleaf and it was still excellent. My 1 year old couldn't get enough!!!
