Pour 3 quarts of water in a 5-qt stock pot and add 1 tsp salt. Bring the water to a boil, and then add the cauliflower. Cook for about 8 minutes, or until well done. 

Drain well, then pat the cooked cauliflower dry between several layers of paper towels. Remove as much water as possible. 

In a food processor or a bowl of a stand mixer, fitted with a paddle attachment, purée the hot cauliflower with the cream cheese, Parmesan, garlic, salt, pepper, and butter until almost smooth. Serve immediately with a garnish of the green onions, if desired.
