    I just made pureed cauliflower the other day to substitute for mashed potatoes. It was really good.
    Steamed Cauliflower - 1/2 a head
    3 cloves of garlic - steamed with the cauliflower and crushed (I just smash it with the flat side of a knife. It stays whole, but is broken open)
    1/2 teaspoon of salt
    Butter (I used cream) - I used about 1/3 cup

    Toss it all in a food processor and mix til creamy. I'm not going to miss the potatoes.

    Along this line, I like roasted garlic in mine or garlic herb butter. I just use sour cream. Tastes a ton better.

    Cauliflower has quickly become my superhero in the kitchen. Particularly cauliflower rice and cauliflower mash. Now that I know how good mashed cauliflower is, I can't figure out why people aren't making this instead of mashed potatoes.

    I have seen several folks refer to cauliflower rice, does any one have a link to how to make it? There is so much info I guess I have missed cauliflower rice.

    For Cauliflower Rice, I like Nom Nom Paleo's recipe.
    Of course, you could just cook and saute the cauliflower but I like the onion as it seems to add something. Texture is a bit more couscous than rice when chopped with the s-blade which I am generally fine with. I'm not certain if grating the cauliflower (which is an option) would provide a more rice like shape.

    I made "tatertots" the other day with pureed cauliflower and they were delicious. I've made cauliflower rice before, and I think the riced version would give the tots the right texture.
