  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...

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

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!!

Added a hint more cheese, but we absolutely LOVED this recipe! Rich and creamy. Faked out even the pickiest of veggie eaters.

Taste is close enough. Texture is a bit different. All in all I really like them!!

Wow that came out really good! I added extra butter for a better keto effect!

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!
