Default Cauliflower alternative

This is funny me posting a recipe. Here goes. I get frozen cauliflower and either on the stove or in the microwave cook it until its very soft then with either a mixer or just a fork mash it up like mash potatoes. Then while its hot either add low carb cheddar sauce or regular shredded cheddar and let it melt from the heat of the cauliflower. Then take sourcream and add it in until its all creamy. Then you can do alot of variations to this like adding peices of bacon. or cooked onion ect.... Its very awsome and extremely low carb. I know there are similar recipies to this but I made this on my own and love it.

I love the idea of cheddar cheese and bacon bits in it. Good idea!

This sounds almost like a quicker version of the faux mashed potatoes

and I love fast and easy food (prob why my weight isn't where I want it to be honestly). So healthy, fast and easy always wins me over

The faux mashed potatoes, which is similar to above, I made two days ago. Oh man, I can tell you there will always be a bowl of this stuff in my refrigerator.

Not only does it taste very similar to mashed potatoes.... for you Southern gals.... I find it tastes like grits too!

Double yummy for me!

RD64's recipe is great - I make something very similar.

Even better is to cook a few pounds of ground beef, then spread the cauliflower cheese mix over it, and bake it in the oven like shepherd's pie!

Does using frozen cauli yield a runny consistency. I worry that the water in the frozen could make it soggy? Should ir be drained and squeezed or is the water good.

We have a covered tupperware bowl with a vented insert that is wonderful for cooking cauliflower. Put the water in the bottom of the bowl and it " steam cooks " the cauli plus lets the water thats inside it drip thru the holes. I miccy mine until falling apart tender.

Thanks
