    Perfect! It’s so delicious and I honestly can’t tell the difference between this and mashed potatoes. I’m in love with this recipe!

    Used riced cauliflower and cut the parsley in half. Added butter and garlic salt once "mashed" to help with the flavor. Better than most mashed cauliflower recipes but still not quite the same as potatoes.

    Great texture and glad I read the reviews. Only used half a head of garlic, added some butter for extra creaminess. But way too much thyme. I would suggest 1/2 tsp and go from there.

    The garlic gives it a great nutty taste. Mine was a bit on the saucier side.

    Texture great, we just prefer potatoes but use this with mozzarella cheese as pizza crust (Wheat Belly book)

    This is good but not great. I love that it's a healthier option for mashed potatoes but I think the Thyme was a bit much. I'm going to put less or replace it with rosemary instead. This was easy to make and I will be making this again!
    Delicious and pretty easy to put together. I skipped the thyme because I didn't have it on hand but added a little butter and salt when blending in the food processor. Even the kids liked it and asked for seconds (and thirds)!

    I added one small potato and coconut water for consistency and smoothness. Plenty of salt and pepper to top it off. Delicious!!

    Okay. I might try it with a small potato on the mix as suggested by others to see if the consistency is better. Play around with the seasoning to your liking!
    Delicious and super easy!! I substituted the olive oil with margarine to make it a bit more creamy. The only less positive aspect is that since I m wanting to be mindful of my energy consumption, next time I want to do this recipe when I m already using my oven and not just for two heads of garlic.... Sure is tasty though!

    Very good! Only a couple hiccups. Website with directions was down, so had to wing it. While recipe didn't turn out as expected, was still delicious! I assume - after the fact - that cauliflower needed to be 'mashed' in a food processor to achieve creamy texture. Tried using mixture, which made cauliflower more 'rice-like.' Probably should have cooked cauliflower longer but didn't have instructions. Will definitely try again!

    This was ok, but not amazing. Needed a lot of seasoning and, as another reviewer pointed out, I ended up adding some actual potato to get the consistency right.

    I added one mashed boiled potato (peeled) to give more consistency and some parley to give more color. Of course it's important to use fresh garlic.

    This recipe attracted me since it is so easy to make, I enjoyed the result although I did some twists: roasting both the garlic and the cauliflower florets already seasoned with dried thyme, pepper, salt and olive oil; I also added a little milk to give it some smoothness while blending. It turned out really well, my family was so tired of boiled cauliflower this idea made them click with it again.

    I am not a fan of fresh Thyme, so I left it out, thinking it would need something else to make it delicious. But when I tasted it after adding the salt & pepper, I loved it, and didn't add anything except a little bit of almond milk to moisten it as needed. DELICIOUS!! My skeptical daughter also agreed that it is definitely a good substitute for mashed potatoes!! I will definitely make this again!!
