Grilled Cabbage Wedges with Ginger-Miso Dressing Recipe

Grilling and roasting are our favorite ways to prepare cabbage. It brings out the sweetness of the vegetable, adds a caramelized flavor, and a bit of smokiness too. This recipe adds a gingery and tangy dressing to the grilled cabbage which sinks between each leaf and provides a sweet and salty bite each time.

Instructions

For the dressing, in a small bowl, whisk together brown sugar, soy sauce, miso, vinegar, mirin, ginger, garlic, sesame oil, crushed red pepper, and white pepper. Set aside. 

For the cabbage, light one chimney full of charcoal. When all the charcoal is lit and covered with gray ash, pour out and arrange the coals on one side of the charcoal grate. Set cooking grate in place, cover grill and allow to preheat for 5 minutes. Clean and oil the grilling grate. Place cabbage wedges on hot side of grill and cook covered, until well charred on first side, about 2 minutes. Flip cabbage, cover, and cook until charred on second side, another 2 minutes. Transfer cabbage to cooler side of grill, cover, and continue cooking until mostly tender but still crunchy in center, about 4 minutes longer. 

Transfer cabbage to a large bowl and toss with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Transfer to a serving platter. Drizzle with sauce, garnish with scallion, and serve immediately.
