  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add cauliflower and reduce heat to medium. Cook cauliflower until very tender, about 10 minutes; drain, shaking the colander to remove as much water as possible.
  2. Blend drained cauliflower and cream in a blender until smooth; transfer to a pot over low heat.
  3. Stir Parmesan cheese, butter, cream cheese, and sea salt through the blended cauliflower; cook and stir until hot, about 5 minutes.

I made this twice. First time, I boiled the cauliflower and was able to mash it with a potato masher. I also used garlic powder instead of cheese. Yum! The second time, I was in a hurry & steame...

This recipe still had a very strong cauliflower taste without much flavor.
