Clean and Cut The Cauliflower – That’s How it Works

How to clean and cut cauliflower

First, you should gather everything you need. This includes the cauliflower, a cutting board, and a sharp knife.

  • Now start cleaning the cauliflower. This means that you first get rid of its large, outer leaves.
  • The best way to do this is to make small incisions at the lower end of the stem with a knife and then tear off the leaves with your hands.
  • Then you should cut off the stem end and the leaf base. To do this, we recommend turning the cauliflower upside down so that you can reach the bottom easily.
  • When all this is done, you can proceed with the process.
  • You can now cut the cauliflower florets from the stalk. This works on the same principle as with broccoli.
  • If you like, you can either leave the cauliflower in florets or cut them into slices. Simply take a floret and cut it into slices starting from the stem.
  • Another variant that is particularly interesting for low-carb diets is cauliflower rice. To do this, use a knife to cut off very fine grains from the florets. You can then cook these grains like normal cauliflower and have a delicious rice substitute.
