Cauliflower Mash, Just Like Potatoes, Except Not

I must admit, we are on a keto adventure at our house, so a lot of these recipes incoming will be low carb, GF treats.  I made this one on a whim as I had extra cauliflower lurking in the fridge after making keto pizza and it turned out quite delicious with all the creaminess of mashed potatoes.  I know your behind your screen looking skeptical, however, just trust me… These rock! Recipe adapted from iBREATHE a fabulous low carb recipe site.
