If you are looking for an alternate to mashed potatoes think about cauliflower as a substitute.  Of course it is not quite the same as mashed potatoes but it is pretty good and I find it a great substitute.  The DH, when he first saw it in the serving bowl, thought that it was mashed potatoes.  I have made this recipe several times.

Ready to be served.


3 cups raw cauliflower, cut into small pieces
1 1/2 cups bouillon
dash of garlic powder
3 to 4 sprigs of parsley
2 tsp parmesan cheese, grated
salt and pepper to taste


In a small pot heat the bouillon and cauliflower to a boil.  Reduce the heat to medium low and cook until soft.  Remove the cauliflower from the pot using a slotted spoon and place in a blender.  Reserve the liquid.  Add the rest of the ingredients, except the parmesan cheese, to the blender and blend until smooth.  Add a bit of the reserve liquid to get the consistency of mashed potatoes.  I added several tablespoons of the liquid to the blender.  Serve with parmesan cheese sprinkled on top.  Serves 2 to 3.
