It’s similar in appearance and texture to mashed potatoes, though you can still make out the mild taste of the cauliflower. But it tastes amazing, and you can add whatever herbs or spices you’d like! The original recipe is from WholeFoodsMarket.com (below is copy and pasted from the site)
Mashed cauliflower tastes similar to mashed potatoes but with fewer carbs. Top with chopped herbs…if you like.
1 medium head cauliflower, trimmed and cut into small florets (about 6 to 7 cups)
1 to 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Himalayan sea salt and ground black pepper to taste
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add cauliflower and cook until very tender, about 10 minutes. Reserve 1/4 cup of the cooking liquid and then drain well and transfer cauliflower to a food processor. Add oil and reserved water, 1 tablespoon at a time, and puree until smooth. (Or, mash cauliflower with a potato masher). Season with salt and pepper and serve.

I just ate that very thing two days ago! It’s yummy! But when I am feeling better, there is an even more yummy recipe with added Millet in it. It is called Millet Mashed Potatoes. You mix cooked Millet in with your Cauliflower, oil or butter, salt, et voila! Almost better than potatoes!
