I have to admit...not a big fan of mashed potatoes....mashed cauliflower is a whole different has so much more texture and flavor than potatoes, never mind the healthy aspect, just don't over cook it...well and then let's not forget the cheese....
This is a great recipe if you have leftover chicken too!!!! You could use turkey too!!


3 cups cauliflower coarsely chopped
1/4 cup water
16 oz chicken tenders
1/3 cup light mayonnaise
1/3 cup shredded parmesan cheese
3 tbl panko breadcrumbs
2 tbl unsalted butter
1/2 tsp dried rosemary
1/2 tsp dried thyme
fresh Italian parsely

Preheat broiler
Steam the cauliflower for about 10-15 minutes and drain. Keep warm
Season chicken with rosemary, thyme, salt and pepper. Place on a baking sheet and broil for 5 minutes a side.
In a bowl stir together mayonnaise, 1/4 cup parmesan and panko breadcrumbs. Spread over the chicken and cook another 2 minutes until the topping is golden brown. Add butter and remaining parmesan to the cauliflower and mash until not quite smooth. Cut up the chicken pieces and add to the mashed cauliflower. Top with Italian parsely as a garnish

A Great Casserole!
