  4. Ooh, I’ve never tried mashing it in my Vitamix. Great idea! I haven’t gotten cauliflower in a while.

  10. Yum! I can’t wait to try this recipe. This is such a great idea for people like me who feel like they “need” some kind of starch to go with a meal. You should add “guilt free” to the title of this recipe, too! 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  12. Wow this looks great. I love cauliflower but I need more ways to enjoy it since not everyone in the house loves it so much 🙂

  13. Looks like you girls are one step ahead for a Thanksgiving post!Yum, this looks delish, and I look forward to getting a head of cauliflower!!!!

    Mmmm….you can probably even use the mash to make a “shepherd’s pie”

    1. that would be a great idea to try.

  14. I just made this and the 1/4 cup of yeast was way too over-powering. I added more herbs and even some goat cheese but I couldn’t get past the yeast taste. Next time I’m going to try about a third of that amount.

  15. I made this with scallions instead of chives & it came out bright green! Very delicious. Thank you for the recipe! I also cooked the garlic in some olive oil to caramelize it, then added both. I did not use any yeast or cheese, just a splash of whole milk. I think next time I may try fat free sour cream, to keep things low fat.
