Rather then mashed potatoes, try this mashed or whipped cauliflower. It makes a great side dish and is even low carb, if that is what you are looking for. This also works really well if you roast the cauliflower first. If you like, you can also play with the texture by chopping up some of the cauliflower, and whipping the rest so that there is more different textures. This recipe is dead easy and super hard to screw up since you just throw it in the food processor!
