If you cook with cauliflower on the reg, you know the struggle of finding little white pieces in every nook and cranny of your kitchen afterward. It turns out working with the veggie doesn’t have to always result in a big mess, though: You just have to switch up your technique for one trained chefs like Ina Garten swear by instead.

After a fan wrote to the Barefoot Contessa asking how to cut cauliflower so it doesn’t get all over the kitchen, Garten realized it was time to share her pro insights with her fans. “If you cut straight through the top, it gets all over your kitchen,” she said in an Instagram video. So, what do you do instead? Simply flip it over and carefully cut around the core.

Once you’ve made it all the way around the center of the cruciferous veggie, you can break off the florets, which will be in pretty big sections. Then to make them smaller, you cut through the stem and can pull them apart totally mess-free. Now whether you’re turning them into mouth-watering buffalo wings or creamy mac and cheese, you can avoid a tedious clean-up.

Take part in the cauliflower craze with these five recipes perfect for fall. Or, if that’s not enough, here are 10 cauliflower rice recipes that are must-tries, too.
