Can it taste like mashed potatoes? Pretty close! But naturally, it is cauliflower so keep that in mind. If you want more of a potato texture, you can do half mashed potatoes with half an hour similar for the Baked Potato Soup recipe. If you can boil water, you can make this dish! Simply boil or steam the cauliflower in broth or water until it becomes tender. Till it becomes smooth then puree it. Here is the immersion blender (affil link) I utilize. If you do not have an immersion blender, you can use your normal blender, just take care not to over-process it and turn it into the soup.
I like using buttermilk since it is creamy and low-fat. If you do not have buttermilk, mild sour cream works wonderful. It is given that mashed potato flavor by Including a signature butter. Like I did in this Cauliflower Mash Bake you can add herbs, cheese etc.
