MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 7, 2012

After I said I would never make this again, my husband said he didn't mind it and WOULD eat it again, and he doesn't even like cauliflower, so I guess I should have given it another star, but I'm unable to change my previous rating!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 7, 2012

I made this recipe with Miracle Whip and I'm not sure if that made the difference in the taste or not, but I wasn't crazy about this recipe. While it had a potato-ish resemblance, it didn't quite taste like potato like I thought it would, and I couldn't get my cauliflower smooth like mashed potatoes are. They also cool off quicker than mashed potatoes and the appeal just wasn't there. If you love cauliflower, then this recipe would be okay.

We love this, especially for my diabetic mother. I use light sour cream, light margarine and chives instead of the mayo and milk, however. If you've never tried this, you need to do so right away! Thanks for sharing this recipe.

You can't even tell it is cauliflower. My kids may even like this better than regular mashed potatoes.
