  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.

Tried this for Christmas brunch even though it was unrated (never been brave enough to do that before.) My husband said it was killer and my mother in law wouldn't stop raving about it. A big ...

This has the right idea but a couple of flaws. First, it should be noted that the cauliflower should be very dry before mashing or the results won’t be thick enough. Knowing this is an issue o...

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...

I roasted the cauliflower so there was no moisture issue at all. I cooked it at 425 for 25 min then put it in the food processor, added cream and off I went!

Ended up adding too much milk so it was runny, but the flavor was good. Don't expect it to taste like potatoes, though.

I generally don’t eat cauliflower but decided to try this to incorporate into my low carb diet. I quit learned that using a blender is definitely not a good idea. It won’t blend without enough l...

Excellent! Definitely get out ALL the extra moisture that you can because I didn’t and it ended up runny. That said, the flavor is delicious and my whole family or potato-lovers likes this fine!...

Finally made this today! Absolutely delicious! My daughter knew it wasn’t real potatoes and was hesitant to try it but she did and was very impressed. I’ll definitely be making it again soon!!
