Mashed Cauliflower Recipe

This is our choice for a side dish that's lower in carbs than mashed potatoes, but just as flavorful and satisfying. I suggest garnishing it with chopped green onions. —Tina Martini, Sparks, Nevada

"This was simple to make. It was very tasty as is. However, for personal preference I added a little extra butter and pepper."
