Followed the recipe to the letter except I steamed the cauliflower in the microwave for 2-1/2 minutes instead of boiling. First I must say that this breaks down incredibly well nutritionally but I must be honest and say that the coconut flavor was negligible. In spite of that the onion and garlic powders add nice flavor to bland cauliflower it does have a pretty smooth consistency so this one's a keeper for me! Read More

We steamed the cauliflower in the microwave and used whole milk instead of coconut milk. Even with thoroughly draining the cauliflower, this came out watery and bland. I wouldn't call it bad but it definitely needs something added to it to make it work well. Read More

Recipe was a great starting point. Boiled And drained the cauliflower. Added the salt, butter, coconut milk. I made a few changes. I sautéed leeks with 3 garlic cloves in olive oil. Put all into the food processor on high for a few minutes. Be careful not to put too much coconut milk, or liquid in. Afterwards I put portions back into hot but clean fry pan To burn off excess liquids. So creamy and delicious with the roasted carrots and grilled salmon. Read More

This was an easy recipe to make. I changed it a bit. I fried onion minced garlic & red pepper in olive oil & added it to the mashed cauliflower. I didn't have coconut milk so I used almond milk. The recipe could use more flavor even with the things I added. Cauliflower is always a bit bland for me. Read More
