REC: Another Mock Mashed Potato
Fri, 12-12-2003 - 3:04pm

Mock Mashed Potatoes

2 10oz pkgs frozen cauliflower (or fresh 3/4 head)
1 tsp chicken boullion granules
1/4 tsp white pepper
1 tsp minced onion flakes (optional)
2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp heavy cream

Preheat oven to 375°F. Cook cauliflower in microwave or on stovetop until it is
VERY done - fall-apart fork tender. Drain well and mix cauliflower with all other
ingredients except cream in food processor or with a powerful mixer (hand or
stand). Mixing with mixer will give "lumpier" results than a food processor, but
some people feel the lumps make it seem even more like mashed potatoes.
Add cream slowly and mix again. (You must be careful adding liquid. If you
add too much, you are in for trouble. Your dish may take a tiny bit more or
less than the called for amount of cream.)

Spray an ovenproof dish with cooking spray and put mixture in. Add pats of
extra butter or margarine on top if you like an extra buttery potato, and a bit of
paprika sprinkled on top adds nice color as well. Bake 15 - 20 minutes until hot.

Made this last night and thought it was pretty good....I went really low-cal tho and used skim milk and just a dab of butter....I like the chicken granules in it too....

Unfortunately, my dh was not impressed!(lolol)...could Not trick him into thinking they'd be a good substitute for tators and he says he prefers cauliflower AS cauliflower and not fake, in the future, I'll just make a smaller batch for just me.

Thanks for posting this Julie...*I* think it's a great substitute!(lol)
