If not using Lecithin, try using a few tablespoons of heavy whipping cream if desired
Dairy Free Option
Make as above EXCEPT eliminate butter or heavy cream and be sure to use lecithin. Butter flavor can be added if desired. I tried 1/4 tsp for the Multiple Servings version.
Cook cauliflower as dryly as possible: bake for approximately 30 minutes in a 350 degree oven OR steam and spread out on a cookie sheet to let the steam evaporate for several minutes OR microwave using your microwave's frozen vegetable setting or according to manufacturer's instructions
Break down the cooked cauliflower with a stick blender or food processor with the butter, cashew milk, and salt. **Don't over process in the food processor unless you want baby food consistency!** You want a smooth consistency without being totally pureed like baby food
Put mashed cauliflower into a bowl and add lecithin
Use the whisk attachment on your stick blender and whisk the lecithin in until completely incorporated and fauxtatoes are nice and fluffy. Or whisk by hand or try a hand mixer if your stick blender doesn't have a whisk attachment.

Trim Healthy Mamas, here's how these delicious fauxtatoes fit into your healthy eating plan.
Lecithin does have fat, so we do need to be mindful when using it in E or FP settings. One teaspoon of lecithin has 1.5 grams of fat.
For E or FP settings, make the Dairy Free Option. This will mean the Single Serving recipe has about 1 gram of fat. The Multiple Servings recipe will have about 2.5 grams of fat. For S settings, we don't count the fat grams, isn't that wonderful?
