I love potatoes too, but I don't think cauliflower can completely replace the potatoes and taste like mashed potatoes. You can use half and half and have the best of both worlds though.

How about substituting cauliflower, mashed and prepared like potatoes. . .prepared right, they're not too bad. Make adjustments in the fats and salt to tailor to your own diet needs.
"Mock" Garlic Mashed Potatoes Low Carb substitute for potatoes
1 medium head cauliflower 1 Tbsp. cream cheese, softened 1/4 cup grated Parmesan 1/2 tsp. minced garlic 1/8 tsp. straight chicken base or bouillon (may substitute 1/2 tsp. salt) 1/8 tsp. freshly ground black pepper 1/2 tsp. chopped fresh or dry chives, for garnish 3 Tbsp. unsalted butter
1. Set a stockpot of water to boil over high heat.
2. Clean and cut cauliflower into small pieces. Cook the cauliflower in boiling water for about 6 minutes, or until well done. Drain well; do not let cool and pat cooked cauliflower very dry between several layers of paper towels.
3. In a bowl with an immersion blender, or in a food processor, puree the hot cauliflower with the cream cheese, Parmesan, garlic, chicken base, and pepper, until almost smooth. Garnish with chives, and serve hot with pats of butter. Yield: 4 servings

we like to boil a cubed potato then mash it with a little buttermilk buttermilk is low fat has lots of calcium and adds great flavor to the mashed spuds without using butter
