MOCK MASHED POTATOES

A great way to fool your kids into eating cauliflower in a way they’ll ask for more!  (wink wink)  Or reduce your carbs and enjoy a tasty side dish.

1 – 16 oz bag frozen cauliflower  (directions at bottom for fresh cauliflower)
1/2 c. shredded cheddar and Monterrey jack cheese
1/4 c. sour cream
2 T. butter
1/4 t. pepper (I add more)
1/4 t. seasoned salt (or season however you wish)
top with chopped chives or green onions
**you could also play around with adding celery salt, garlic salt, onion salt, etc.; whatever suits your family’s taste buds.

Place cauliflower in microwave-safe bowl.  Cover and heat on high 8 minutes.  Stir in remaining ingredients and microwave 3-4 minutes until tender.  Whip with beater until smooth or put in food processor 30 seconds.

*If using FRESH cauliflower, clean medium head and cut into small pieces.  Boil on stove 6 minutes.  Drain, mix in other ingredients and heat thoroughly – whip with beater.
