This recipe for Cauliflower Mash is so versatile. It is delicious with sour cream instead of heavy cream, love it with chives, and is great topped with cheese and bacon for a twice baked flavor.

  1. Looks lovely but I think the popularity of cauliflower is all around the 5+2 diet and I don’t think the dairy would go down quite so well! I love cauliflower however it’s served, even just boiled (I know! Shocker!)

    • It took me a while to respond because I was looking up info about the diet you referenced. Sounds like it is big in the UK. Not so much in the states, yet.But now I am intrigued. Many of the low carb diets popular here do not have issues with the use of dairy, so this will work well for those diets. I don’t find I have a problem with the small amount of dairy in this recipe. I have been able to maintain a 40lb weight loss for over a year with recipes like this one. In fact, it is a family favorite. We are like you, I think cauliflower may be our all time favorite vegetable, but then there are green beans, so no…cauliflower has some real competition. Haha!
