This is the yummiest way to have cabbage! It’s relatively quick and easy and makes a great side dish! Plus it uses the grill – less dishes to wash! If you don’t want to use the grill, bake at 400 degrees in the oven for about 20 – 25 minutes per side.
- 1 small head of cabbage or 1/2 of a large head
- black pepper
- olive oil
- reduced sodium tamari or soy sauce
Preheat grill. Cut the cabbage in half and remove the core. Then slice thinly, cutting slices in half if it’s a large cabbage. Tear off a very long piece of foil (about 2 – 2.5′ long). Drizzle some oil in the center (or spray). Put 1/4 of the sliced cabbage on the foil, grind some black pepper on it and drizzle with some tamari/soy sauce. Put another 1/4 of the cabbage on top and repeat the pepper and tamari. Bring the two long ends of the foil together and roll over a couple of times to really seal it. Roll in the sides of the packet to make a tight foil package. Repeat with a second foil packet with the remaining 1/2 of the cabbage.
Lower the grill to medium-low heat. Place both packets centered on the grill, about 12 minutes per side. Carefully open one up after the 24 minutes to see that the cabbage is tender and a bit caramelized. If it isn’t done yet, carefully fold back up and grill a little longer.
Cabbage is quite yummy and really good for you – a good source of Protein, Thiamin, Calcium, Phosphorus and Copper, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, Folate, Magnesium, Potassium and Manganese. Plus it has powerful antioxidants that help prevent cancer. So, eat up!
