    Hiya

    I'm planning a full red week and was looking for carb free potato/rice alternatives. I tried the cauliflower rice a while ago and it was surprisingly yummy! So I've found this recipe and I'm wondering could I substitute the sour cream for either Quark, 0% greek yoghurt or fromage frais to make it syn free? Has anyone tried this?? Heres the recipe:

    Mock Mashed Potatoes
    Recipe makes two servings.

    2 cups cauliflower, finely chopped
    1 tablespoon sour cream, or more to taste
    1 tablespoon butter
    Salt and pepper to taste

    Directions:

    Steam or microwave cauliflower until very soft.
    Put cauliflower in blender or food processor with butter and sour cream, blend. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve hot.

    mmmmmm I'd try it with quark but not 0% greek yoghurt or fromage frais.

    It does sound yummy.

    I have butternut squash instead of potatoes. Or have potatoes as hexb.:)

    i'd just use the sour cream, if you buy the light stuff, it wont be too many syns for a tablespoon.

    It might be nice with reduced fat creme fraiche - I often use this in recipes as an alternative to sour cream.

    I also use BNS and celeriac as an alternative to potato. Celeriac chips are great!

    Thanks for the tip britmum, will see what I can get my hands on at the shop! Kevandju5 what does celeriac taste like? I always think of celery when I see it and I hate celery so I've never tried it...!
