About a year ago when our daughter came to stay while her husband was in Korea...I was fixing dinner and I wanted to fix Cauliflower...Which my daughter didn't want to eat...I decided I would fix it anyway instead of potatoes...I would mash Cauliflower and put Parmesan Cheese in it...Well I didn't tell her that it was Cauliflower though consistency does not look the same...She loved it...The only other way she will eat it is if we make a white cheese sauce to pour over the florets...
