  • You can use your electric mixer to "mash" the cauliflower. It whips them up nicely.

    I always struggle to get my cauli mash consistency just right. Your's looks perfect - I can't wait to give it a shot.

    • Thank you. You know what I forgot to add for a tip was to use your electric mixer to "mash" them up. Yikes....Need to add that now!

    I use claiflower only and add some cream cheese in stead of butter/nargerube,

    no potato flakes for me. It’s a keto receipe also.
