I found this box of mashed cauliflower at Walmart and decided to give it a try. I had never tried it and thought that now was as good a time as any. Having never even made my own, my curiosity got the better of me. The only one available was the ranch flavor, though I would have preferred the plain original.
This box is smaller than I thought it would be, when I saw it online. It is more like a side dish serving. Being the little piggy I am, I wanted to have it as a meal. I’m odd that way.
It tasted good, if you know that it isn’t going to taste like it’s made from potatoes and accept that going in. You can taste the cauliflower, but it does have the texture of mashed potatoes. It is almost like regular mashed potatoes, but perhaps a lumpier and less thick version. I think that if you get the original and add cream cheese or use it as a baked potato mash, it will do nicely. I would buy the original, but not the Ranch version. I would probably add a lot of butter and do cream cheese, maybe even cabbage.
This is a good option for people with IBS and didn’t make me flare. It is Vegetarian friendly, but not for Vegans.
