Cauliflower Mash

Last Thanksgiving our guests were completely off carbs and sugar. She had to help me think about what to serve. Dinner was delicious. Dean smoked the turkey, I made a Waldorf salad, they brought veggies, one of which was cauliflower mashed "potatoes". She assured me it would taste just like mashed potatoes, and sure enough it did.
I have had them a couple of times since when they either came to us or we to them. I have never made them myself. First of all, I never remembered to buy cauliflower while at the store and secondly, it always sounded a little time consuming. 
And then on Friday, look what Dean discovered at Costco.

Cauliflower already chopped and shredded or whatever they do to it. It was So Simple. Put some in a bowl, sprinkle with three tablespoons of water, microwave for 4 or 5 minutes, and whip with butter, sour cream, cheese if you want it. Voila! Cauliflower mash that actually tastes like potatoes. Truly amazing and for the two of us who try to avoid negative carbs as much as possible, a delightful way to have a tasty side dish.
