Reviews forPumpkin & Cauliflower Garlic Mash
"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!"
