Another great variation is to add a couple wedges of laughing cow garlic herb cheese instead of butter . it adds very little fat and calories . If you are on weight watchers as am I am it adds 2 + points per wedge
Nobody in my family liked this.
This is a great side dish. I'm on a low carb diet and this is a great replacement for potatoes. It would be good for anyone though. I even have it cold and it's still great.
Yum! (I cheated and added a little mozzarella, but it would have been perfect even without it.) Even my boys loved it.
I liked this and even my husband said he thought it was ok. I used fresh cauliflower. I also set a little of this aside and followed the advice of another reviewer and put some laughing cow cheese wedges in it. I thought that was an even tastier variation!
A wonderful use of cauliflower, not necessarily one of my favorite veggies; I used 1/2 head of fresh cabbage cut in floweretts, decreased the butter to 2 TBS of margarine/Benechol, limited the salt to a dash of kosher salt and added a smidge of plain, low fat yogurt. These substitutions reduced the fat calories and the sodium count. Hubby and I loved it. A new BFF for us.
My husband raved about this dish! I only used 1 bag of frozen cauliflower, 3 Laughing Cow light garlic and herb wedges (instead of the butter), 1/4 tsp salt and 1/8 tsp pepper, and then 1 tsp of garlic powder. Easy and delicious. Will become part of our regular rotation!
Wonderful. I added some diced fresh chives and a splash of honey.
