how do you cut your cauliflower?
While I was prepping my cauliflower for roasting, I started wondering if there was a “right” way to cut cauliflower. How would Martha Stewart do it?
I learned how to cut a cauliflower into florets from my mom. She asked me to cut up a cauliflower. I was cutting the thing like it was cabbage. I was ending up with cauliflower dust. When she showed up, she was like, “What the hell are you doing?” She then showed me how to cut it so that I didn’t end up with a whole pile of cauliflower dust.
So how are you supposed to cut up a head of cauliflower?
Martha Stewart’s instructions weren’t so good.
The Kitchn offers photo instructions. (http://www.thekitchn.com/thekitchn/tips-techniques/basic-technique-how-to-cut-cauliflower-089495) They make a couple straight cuts. (Cauliflower dust!) Then they break it down further by hand.
There are also some videos about how to break down a head of cauliflower.
Seriously tho, how do you break down a head of cauliflower? Readers + wanderers, let me know!
I roasted my cauliflower in the oven. Tossed it with some olive oil, salt & pepper, and a couple of cloves of sliced garlic. Roast the cauliflower at 400°F (200°C) for 30 minutes.
