An easy way to cut into a head of cauliflower

First, slice through the core of each half. This will give you four quarters, each with much of the core exposed.

Next, slice the thickest part of the core away from each quarter. You can either discard the core and thicker stems, or slice them thinly and cook them along with the florets. Like broccoli stems, cauliflower stems have a beautiful tender texture when cooked.

Now just pull the florets apart with your fingers. You may need to trim away some of the thicker stems with a paring knife.

Yield: 4 servings
