I absolutely HATE cauliflower! What possessed me to try this recipe I have no idea, but I am glad I did! Creamy and delicious and definitely not overpowering on the cauliflower flavor.
A few hints to make it stand out:
Be sure you drain the cauliflower after steaming. You may even find a way to squeeze excess water from it. Once everything is blended, it is very thin. It holds it's shape and "acts" like mashed potatoes, but still very thin.
I felt the salt was actually lacking so I doubled the amount.
Keep the food processor running the whole time while you add stuff. You want to really process the heck out of it to get that creamy consistency.
HERE IS THE BIG HINT!!! Once you are done and ready to scoop it out of the food processor to serve it - DON'T! Scoop it out and put it back in the pot you used to steam the cauliflower (after draining and drying the pot). Heat it until piping hot. On medium, this will only take a minute or two while you stir constantly. Because the cauliflower is whirring around in the processor and you're adding cold cream cheese and cold parmesan cheese, it really brings the temperature way down. I ate it immediately (it was good) and then tried a 2nd batch after heating it and the difference was dramatic. HEAT!
