"it sounded interesting but -wow!!- i was not prepared for how good this was. we've always liked cauliflower but this could probably win over some of the haters too."

"Great alternative to mashed potatoes. easy to make and very tasty. I substituted plain greek yogurt for the sour cream and felt it gave a nice flavor. I also doubled the garlic based on comments in other recipes."
