Mother Nature did not have actually OCD.  If she did, there would certainly be an ext symmetry in the world.  It would be a pretty boring place, but, at least all ours vegetables would be the very same size, which bring me come this point:  How lot is in a head of cauliflower?  The most frustrating thing about most cauliflower recipes is their absence of specificity about precisely exactly how much cauliflower come purchase.  Generic measurements for volume (2 cups-, 4 cups-florets) or a vague product description (1 big head, 2 tool heads), space meaningless come the mean cooker-of-cauliflower, and, are the biggest causes of recipe fail -- prevent recipe failure, usage a scale.  

Weight (1, 2-pound head, 1 pound florets) is the just measurement worth a damn.

You are watching: 1 head of cauliflower is how many cups

Measuring cauliflower needs a scale, both in the grocery store store once purchasing this vegetable, and, in the kitchen when cooking it.  For my demonstration, i bought two tool heads that cauliflower.  Untrimmed, the one top top the left sweet 2 pounds, 15 ounces, and, the one top top the right weighed 2 pounds, 2 ounces.  After trimming, right here is just how it every weighed out:

A usual untrimmed, medium head weighs about 2 pounds.

After trimming & removed florets wherein each meets the core...

... A 1-quart measure full-to-the-top (6 cups) florets...

... Or, approximately speaking, in between 1-1 1/4 pounds florets.
