  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 have to agree, a bit on the runny side. I had already pureed a bunch of cauliflower so instead of boiling chunks I just boiled what I had and then drained it. I then continued on from there. I...

Next time I make this I will leave out the cream also. Too runny, the consistency out of the blender would have been perfect.

Served with Holiday lunch, our youngest married son does not like cauliflower and was hesitant to try this and assured us he would let us know how bad it tasted. He had two helpings and had hi...
