I wanted healthy alternatives to my family's favorite recipes. Pumpkin, cauliflower and thyme make an amazing dish. You'll never miss those plain old mashed potatoes. —Kari Wheaton, South Beloit, Illinois

"So much more interesting than just squash or just cauliflower! We used regular cream cheese and it worked fine."

"Awesome! I sprinkled some dried thyme instead of the fresh. I also cut the Cayenne and black pepper down to a sprinkle for my super sensitive kid. I thought it needed more salt. Also used 2.5oz of block cream cheese instead of the spreadable. I also thought it was better without the pumpkin, but it was delicious with it too. (My cauliflower hating husband said it tasted like dirt, but I didn't expect him to like it.)"

"Well this is delicious! Also, it's a nice change from your standard mashed potatoes. I might cut the cayenne in half the next time I make this, but all-in-all, it was/is dynamite!"
