I had my son taste it and he is one picky eater for Veggies and he even liked it... This is going to be the way I cook smashed potatoes from now on, I am doing weight watcher and I am going to share this with everyone... I use reduced fat sour cream, and no fat Cheese mixed with a bit of reguler cheese, and added a pinch of salt and pepper to add to the GREAT taste.. Thanks, Marcy

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a staple in our low-carb diet menu. This is a staple in our low-carb diet menu. Suggestion: instead of boiling the cauliflower, steam it. It will retain less water, which comes out when mashed. If you don't have a steamer, cook as directed, but once you drain the cauliflower return to the pan and place over low heat and mash while heating (causing the excess water to evaporate). Remove from heat and add additional ingredients.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Served this instead of mashed potatoes when I had my family over for dinner one Sunday. Served this instead of mashed potatoes when I had my family over for dinner one Sunday. When I told my family what it was they all made a face but after tasting this dish, they couldn't stop raving about it. Now my three daughters make it once a week and my grandchildren who do not like veggies gobble it all down. Thank you so much for this delicious recipe...I also make it once a week

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Been making variations of this recipe quite a while with different flavors of dressing. Been making variations of this recipe quite a while with different flavors of dressing. Also try instead of dressing, low-fat sour cream and low-fat onion & chive cream cheese. Bacon bits and fresh-snipped chives are a nice addition. For a main dish, I add diced ham or bite-size pieces of smoked sausage. My husband is not a veggie fan, but he loves this dish. Jean

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is one way I can get my children to eat their vegatables! This is one way I can get my children to eat their vegatables!! Instead of the dressing, they like it with just butter, a little shredded cheese and pepper. I serve this about once a week always trying different variations I can think up. Add chunks of chicken breast after mashing for a quick and easy dinner that eveyone will like.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I don't normally rate a recipe, I just don't make it again if it is not very good. I don't normally rate a recipe, I just don't make it again if it is not very good. The cauliflower came out extremely watery. I needed to press it to release enough water to add the dressing. Boiling the cauliflower diluted all of it's natural flavor (as well as the vitamins). I will never make this again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from After reading the first comment, I decided to steam the veggies, rather than boil. After reading the first comment, I decided to steam the veggies, rather than boil. I steamed them for about twice as long as I normally do, and the recipe was wonderful. My husband loved them, and my teenage son asked me to make another batch the following nite. Thank you!
