Whipped Cauliflower, Low-Carb

Recipe by  

"Finally mastered this dish after about a dozen tries! Great low-carb side dish to replace mashed potatoes. Like I said above, I have made this at least a dozen times and feel I have perfected it! Fool around with it some, but I have found these ingredients, cutting as much stem off, and squeezing all the water out really make this delicious! You can add a splash of milk to make it even creamier."

  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Cook cauliflower florets in the boiling water until they are extremely tender, about 10 minutes; drain in a colander. Put several paper towels on top of the cauliflower and use back of a big bowl to press down and squeeze as much liquid from the cauliflower as you can.
  2. Mix Parmesan cheese, cream cheese, chicken soup base, roasted garlic, and butter in a bowl. Add cauliflower to the cheese mixture; beat with an electric hand mixer until creamy, about 3 minutes. Beat milk into the mixture until you get your desired texture. Season with salt and pepper.

Great recipe! I forgot to add the parmesan cheese and I thought it still tasted great! I used a vegetable steamer for the cauliflower so I skipped the step about draining and using paper towels. I also added the milk and didn't have any problems with it being too watery. I'll definitely make this again!

Did not enjoy the garlic flavour combined with the taste of the cauliflower at all.

My son & husband reaaly liked this recipe. In fact my son (25 yrs old) thought they were potatoes...lol. It was pretty easy to make and satisfying. The only drawback is it only yields 2 cups, which means no second helpings or leftovers :/ Note: I skipped the milk, it seemed fine w/o it. Thanks for the recipe, Deb! It is a keeper for sure :)

Wonderful recipe, everything came together. Did add a bit more milk because when I started to mix it started flying out of the bowl. Soup base essential to flavorings.

This recipe is very good! I was pleasently surprised. Of course I would rather have mashed potatoes, but this is a great substitute. My teens even liked it. I would absolutely recommend this recipe!

I had to cook my cauliflower a lot longer than 10' and I still wasnt able to get it to mash so I put it in a skillet and cooked till it was browned Not very good but I am sure this is Cook error.
