Mother Nature go not have actually OCD.  If she did, there would certainly be much more symmetry in the world.  It would be a pretty boring place, but, at the very least all our vegetables would certainly be the very same size, which brings me to this point:  How much is in a head of cauliflower?  The most frustrating thing around most cauliflower recipes is their lack of specificity about precisely exactly how much cauliflower come purchase.  Generic dimensions for volume (2 cups-, 4 cups-florets) or a vague product description (1 large head, 2 tool heads), space meaningless to the typical cooker-of-cauliflower, and, are the biggest reasons of recipe fail -- protect against recipe failure, use a scale.  

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

You are watching: How much frozen cauliflower equals one head

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 the cauliflower.  Untrimmed, the one ~ above the left weighed 2 pounds, 15 ounces, and, the one on the best weighed 2 pounds, 2 ounces.  After trimming, here is exactly how it every weighed out:

A usual untrimmed, medium head weighs about 2 pounds.

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

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

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