1 (8 ounce) package
fat-free cream cheese, softened
reduced-fat sour cream
lowfat cottage cheese
1 1/2 cups
shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese, divided
My husband and I loved this recipe. However, we did not use low fat ingredients as we are watching our sugar intake (low fat = added sugar). Perfect alternative to loaded mashed potatoes.
This is orange, because I got a big orange cauliflower for 99 cents. This is tasty but you don't need a lot of the stuff in there. IMHO I use the full amount of cottage cheese, 2 ounces of ff cream cheese and 1/4 c of ff Greek yogurt in lieu of the sour cream. I was going to add the cheddar cheese to the dish but it really didn't need it... so I topped the dish with a little cheddar. only 1/4 cup. I think with all the other stuff added, this might have been over doing it....so if you make this, start with less of the add ins... you may not need or want them all.
Awesome! I steamed the cauliflower, instead of microwaving (maintains flavor and nutrients). Also sauteed celery, garlic, shallots, and 1/2 of a medium red onion in a bit of the bacon fat, a little butter, turmeric, crushed red pepper flakes, salt and pepper; then added this mix, once veggies were tender, to the cauliflower, and blended as instructed (also added a smidgen of buttermilk). Loved it, loved it! Celery added some nice texture to this dish. Cauliflower is my new best friend! Thanks, Erik!!
