Mashed Potatoes with Cauliflower

I tried numerous of times to make mashed potatoes with cauliflower.  One time, it turned out like a soup.  AND then one time, it was really chunky.  After my many fails, I was about to give up on trying until I FINALLY figured it out!  The texture turned out perfect.  Try them out and let me know what you think!

    1. Briton, I would love to hear what your kids think! Keep me posted. I love experimenting recipes on my husband and to see whether or not he tastes the ‘healthiness’. All my recipes have past the test so far!

    1. Kylie, I LOVE LOVE LOVE sneaking in healthy ingredients when my husband doesn’t know. I wait until afterwards to tell him what’s in it. Ha ha. Try it out and let me know if he says anything!

    1. Great question, Amber! I like my mashed potatoes a little chunkier, so I just mash them. However, you could beat them to make them smoother and creamier. The cauliflower will take on similar texture as the potatoes.
