Cabbage is one of those super simple yet super yummy veggies that I could eat every single day. This recipe for cabbage steaks is my new favorite way to enjoy the leafy green vegetable because it becomes a template for any combination of flavors. My favorite topping is shaved Parmesan with salt and pepper, but bbq sauce is delicious, too.
HOW TO MAKE GRILLED CABBAGE STEAKS
Stand a head of cabbage on its stem and cut vertically into 1-inch slices. Place the cabbage steaks on a flat surface and brush both sides with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
Light a grill over medium heat and place the prepared cabbage slices directly onto the grill. Cook for 3-5 minutes per side, or until crispy. Remove from grill and top with desired toppings. Serve cabbage steaks immediately!
Store leftovers in a large resealable plastic bag in the fridge. Heat leftovers in the microwave for 1 minutes to enjoy at a later time.
