Mashed Cauliflower Recipe

On a health kick but craving mashed potatoes? I have been completely obsessed with mashed cauliflower lately. Not only is it completely healthy, but it honestly tastes very similar to mashed potatoes. So similar that even my children don’t know we aren’t actually eating potatoes. Mashed cauliflower is easy to make. Basically if you can make mashed potatoes, you can make this!
