Goat Cheese Mashed Cauliflower

This is a great holiday recipe perfect for your Thanksgiving dinner. I used a garlic and herb blend goat cheese for my mashed cauliflower, but you can use any flavor combination that you wish.

If you want, mash the cauliflower with a potato masher and leave small chunks for smashed cauliflower instead of mashed for more texture.
