Mashed Cauliflower w/ Olive Oil and Parmesan

1 cauliflower, cut into small florets (Or you can use frozen cauliflower)
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp ground black pepper
2 TBSP butter
½ cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1 TBSP chopped Italian parsley
2 tsp olive oil

Put the fresh cauliflower in a food processor and process into rice. Place in a double boiler and steam until just soft – 10 minutes.  If using frozen cauliflower just thaw.  Not necessary to steam b/c frozen has already been blanched.

Return to the food processor and process into a mash (like mash potatoes).

Add to a pot with a little olive oil, with the remaining ingredients, mix and warm up then serve.  You can always add more butter or even cream.  Very similar to making mashed potatoes.
