Mashed cauliflower and potato

Weight Watchers calls these "mock mashed potatoes" but honestly? Just call them what they are -- mashed cauliflower with a few potatoes thrown in.
In any case, it's really good. And doesn't completely alleviate my craving for mashed potatoes, but are a good substitute.
And Katie liked them, too.

8 oz cauliflower, florets
3 small uncooked Yukon Gold potato(es), peeled, cut into 1-inch chunks (about 10 oz) (I used red potatoes)
2 clove(s) (medium) garlic clove(s), peeled
1 tsp table salt, divided
1/4 cup(s) low-fat milk
2 tsp butter
1/8 tsp black pepper
1 Tbsp chives, fresh, snipped

Place cauliflower, potatoes, garlic and 1/2 teaspoon of salt in a medium saucepan. Add enough water to cover ingredients and bring to a boil. Boil until vegetables are tender, about 10 to 15 minutes; drain and return to saucepan.
Stir in milk, butter, remaining 1/2 teaspoon of salt and pepper; mash with a potato masher until smooth. Stir in chives and serve. Yields about 1/2 cup per serving.

Shannon - would you mind including the WW points for recipes where you know them? I'm not officially following the program, but I may start (again) at some point and the points would be helpful. Thanks!
