  • 1 head cauliflower or more


  • Place the cauliflower stem side down.
  • Slice the cauliflower in half by starting at the top of the cauliflower crown down to the core.
  • Cut the core out of each half of the cauliflower by angling your knife to cut a V shape into the core.
  • Some florets will separate naturally but to help it along, use your hands and break apart the cauliflower into florets.
  • If you wish, you can cut larger florets into halves or quarters. Or you can store larger florets together and smaller florets together for different uses.
