1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 clove garlic, smashed
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon reduced fat cream cheese
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer.  Bring water to a boil.  Add cauliflower, cover and steam until tender, about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a small skillet over medium heat, cook and stir garlic until softened, about 2 minutes.  Remove from heat.

Transfer half the cauliflower, to a food processor, cover and blend on high.  Add remaining cauliflower florets, one at a time, until vegetables are creamy.  Blend in garlic, Parmesan cheese, cream cheese, salt and black pepper.
