- ¼ tsp salt
Place cauliflower, parsnips, and garlic in a large pot of boiling water. Cook until just tender, but not mushy. Carefully transfer with a slotted spoon to the pitcher of your high-speed blender. Add oil and purée until smooth. If you are using an immersion hand blender, carefully strain veggies, return to pot, add oil, and purée until smooth.
