There are some recipes that are basic staples in any home cook's repertoire and I believe this is one of those recipes, especially if you are trying to eat healthier or lower your carbohydrate intake. Simple mashed cauliflower that can stand in for mashed potatoes any night. They are creamy, delicious, and with under 100 calories per serving are a guilt free side dish. They can also be customized a million ways depending on what you're in the mood for. Try subbing cream cheese for the butter, adding some sharp Parmesan or goat cheese, adding a pinch of nutmeg, or blending in some roasted garlic.
