Deceptively Delicious-Garlic Mashed Potatoes

I borrowed this cook book from a friend of mine and fell in love with it! Its a wonderful way to incorperate veggies into your family's diet. Here is a mashed potato recepie that I adapted from this book.

1 lb baking potatoes-peeled, cubed
1/2 Cup cauliflower puree
2 Tablespoons butter/margarine
1/2 Cup milk
1 teaspoon salt
3 oz. grated parmesean cheese
1 1/2 cloves of garlic-minced

Put the potatoes in a large pot and add enough water to cover them by about 3 inches.
Bring to a boil over hight heat.
Boil on medium heat about 15 minutes or until tender when pierced with a fork.
While potatoes are boiling:
Put milk and garlic into a small saucepan and cook on medium heat for about 5 minutes. Set aside.
Drain potatoes and put in a bowl for mixing or beating.
Add milk, parmesean, salt, butter, and cauliflower.
Beat until desired texture is acheived!

My husband claimed that these are the best potatoes I've ever made, but the only thing I did different from my usual recipe is add cauliflower. Go figure!
