    Eureka! My favorite mashed cauliflower recipe! I've tried preparing mashed cauliflower a lot of ways. This is the most delicious way I've tried. The texture is really close to that of mashed potatoes, and this doesn't seem to "weep" too much if you keep it overnight. I used homemade chicken stock, which made it even yummier. I recommend using full-fat sour cream and using a brand that contains 100% cultured cream (i.e., with no gums or stabilizers). I use Daisy brand. If that's not available in your area, just check the labels of other brands.
