It's a good question. But I really don't worry about it and always approximate anyway, because regardless, it's pretty darn low in calories. EVEN if you eat a whole large head.
I know, isn't it wonderful?
I'm like you, I eat a lot of it at one time. If it's a small head, I'll eat the whole thing in one sitting. Usually I mash it. I LOVE LOVE LOVE mashed cauliflower. So I cook it then mash it up with a little salt & pepper and a couple of tablespoons of fat-free cream cheese.
Thanks for the tips! 'Tis true, it's hard to measure cauliflower by the cup, which is why I usually throw it on my digital scale to see how many ounces I've got. That kitchen scale is my best friend.
