Grilled Cabbage

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!

    I made your grilled cabbage for Steve and my parents last night and it turned out so yummy! I did it in a preheated 425 oven, turning half way through just like you do on the grill. It caramelized well and the flavor reminded me of mu shu veggies. Oh, and I made it out of leftover bagged coleslaw in my mom’s fridge so it had shredded carrots. Super yummy!
