    Bump! I've heard about this "fake mashed potatoes" recipe for years but never believed it would actually be as good as mashed potatoes. I am going to try it though based on all the positive feedback here. Thanks for sharing! You've finally motivated me to give it a shot!

    to try and help with the 'runnyness' maybe put back into the pot that you boiled the cauliflower in and back on the stove - on the same burner you cooked on, with the heat turned off - for a few minutes, it takes out some of the moisture!

    I've made this as suggested using cream of mushroom soup and although it was tasty mine were runny as well.

    I solved this the next batch by steaming (much less water absorption) the cauliflower and onion together for 6 minutes and then processing it. It was phenomenal in both consistency and flavor.

    It's now in our permanent rotation. Thanks OP!

    Here is a variation of this recipe.
    Cut the core out of the cauliflower. Put EVOO in a roasting pan.
    Place the cauliflower head upside down in roasting pan.
    Stuff minced garlic into spaces in cauliflower head (as much as you like --- I like lots)
    Turn it over and drizzle some EVOO on top and more garlic too.

    Roast until tender.
    Doesn't need butter
    Can top with tomato sauce.
