In a large saucepan, bring ½ cup water to a boil with cauliflower and salt. Once boiling, reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for about 30 minutes until cauliflower is very tender, stirring occasionally and adding more water if needed. Uncover and cook for a further 5 minutes until most of the water has evaporated.
