I love cauliflower but it is such a messy veggie to prep. I always end up with small pieces of cauliflower florets all over my counters and floor. Any suggestion for a better way to prep it?

Yes! Turn the cauliflower over, florets down on the cutting board and cut out the core with a knife. Then, just cut through the stems, and then pull the florets apart. You end up with whole florets of cauliflower- and no mess!
