Fake Mashed Potatoes

Everyone is on a health kick these days. One of the biggest things, other than kale chips, is the cauliflower. In the 90s, you either steamed it or added cheese and bread crumbs to it. However, since 2010 cauliflower seems to have been deemed almost a “super fruit” in the veggie world. You can mash it to make it a pizza crust. You can hide it in casseroles. The favorite is as a healthy alternative to that starchy potato.

I made my own recipe and l’ll be honest, it was amazing.
