  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.

  3. Stir Parmesan cheese, butter, cream cheese, and sea salt through the blended cauliflower; cook and stir until hot, about 5 minutes.
