Helpful hints

  • One medium head cauliflower yields 6 cups.
  • Garlic powder may be substituted for the minced garlic.
  • Since cauliflower is bland like potatoes, this recipe tastes similar to mashed potatoes. The potassium content is 100 mg lower per serving.
  • To reduce fat content, use light cream cheese. Protein, sodium, potassium and phosphorus content will be slightly higher.
