I don't really remember my mother having cauliflower in the house when I was a child. I couldn't tell you the first time that I every tasted it. Most likely it was raw, maybe on a vegetable platter, and I probably thought it bland. I don't remember the first time that I actually ate cauliflower cooked, either, but I know that as an adult I prefer my cauliflower steamed until it is fork tender and served up with just a tad of butter. That's the yummiest!
With its cream cheese, Parmesan, and minced garlic, this version of "Mock" Garlic Mashed Potatoes on the Food Network will surely please!
