      I challenge anyone to tell me they would miss mashed potatoes after making this!!! I put in extra garlic and extra clarified butter. Unbelievable. I had to hold back from eating the whole batch…but then thought, but it’s cauliflower!!! AWESOME!!!

      ^ I did extra garlic and butter as well and it was amazing! Went perfectly with the balsamic and rosemary chicken.

      Was a little too sweet for me, but still enjoyed it! I’d maybe try a different onion next time.

      we dont have vidalia onion over here in australia so i substituted with french onions as they are also a bit sweet and it tasted amazing. if you find it too sweet perhaps substitute with a normal onion?
