Here's another recipe I tried from a book I bought, 500 More Low-Carb Recipes By Dana Carpender
Nancy O'Connor's Creamy Garlic-Chive Fauxtatoes
The book had quite a few Fauxtato recipes - this is the one I tried and loved!
These came out a bit more creamy than regular mashed potatoes, but they taste pretty good.
Put 4 Cups fresh cauliflower (600 g) in a microwaveable casserole with a lid. Add a couple of Tablespoons water, cover, and nuke it on high for 8 minutes or so, until tender.
Blend cooked cauliflower in food processor with 1/2 Cup (115 g) cream cheese with chives, 2 Tablespoons (30 g) butter, and 1 clove garlic, crushed. Salt and pepper to taste, then serve.
Yields 3 servings (a lot more than that when I made it).
Each with 236 calories; 20 g fat; 5 g protein; 10 g carbohydrate; 3 g dietary fiber; and 7 g usable carbs.
This was delicious with the Sophia Loren chicken recipe.
Low carb and gluten free!
