Awesome, made it from left over turkey from cooking the carcass, and broth. Will make it again!
The recipe was a little hard to follow in my opinion. I loved using cauliflower as mashed potatoes for the first time but other than that.. not very impressed.
I made this recipe for the first time and it turned out beautifully. I didn't have any frozen peas so I substituted with a can of corn. A friend of mine doesn't like cooked cauliflower but really enjoyed the new twist on an old favorite. I will definitely make it again.
I had issues with this recipe. There was not enough liquid in the cauliflower mixture to blend in my blender, so I had to empty it and blend in two batches in a smaller chopper that I have. Lots of blender parts and bowls to wash after that! Perhaps it should have specified a food processor. I don't know if I had a small head of cauliflower or what, but there was barely enough to cover the turkey mixture - just a thin, skimpy layer. The turkey mixture also needed more liquid - turned out very dry after baking. I wondered if the cauliflower couldn't have been cooked in the microwave -- much simpler! Altogether, a frustrating experience.
I used this recipe and made a few ingredient adjustments, it came out perfect. It was so yummy and everyone loved it. I would certainly make this again with the cauliflower as a healthy alternative.
