Mother Nature did not have actually OCD.  If she did, there would certainly be much more symmetry in the world.  It would certainly be a quite boring place, but, at the very least all our vegetables would be the very same size, which bring me come this point:  How lot is in a head that cauliflower?  The many frustrating thing around most cauliflower recipes is their lack of specificity about precisely just how much cauliflower come purchase.  Generic dimensions for volume (2 cups-, 4 cups-florets) or a pass out product description (1 large head, 2 tool heads), room meaningless come the median cooker-of-cauliflower, and, are the biggest reasons of recipe failure -- protect against 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 equals how many cups

Measuring cauliflower requires a scale, both in the grocery store as soon as purchasing this vegetable, and, in the kitchen when food preparation it.  For mine demonstration, i bought two tool heads that cauliflower.  Untrimmed, the one on the left sweet 2 pounds, 15 ounces, and, the one ~ above the appropriate weighed 2 pounds, 2 ounces.  After trimming, right here is how it all weighed out:

A common untrimmed, tool head weighs about 2 pounds.

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

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

... Or, around speaking, between 1-1 1/4 pounds florets.

Chopped florets from 1, 2-pound head = 4 generous cups.

Don't play, sweet the cauliflower first -- at the store!
