Let’s be honest, anytime of the year is great for grilling! If you are not a fan of braving the cold Nebraska wind, consider a counter top model. I ran across a brand new George Foreman grill at a garage sale, best $10 I ever spent! 

Grilling can allow you to really expand your creativity with all of the food groups. One of my favorite vegetables is cabbage. Here is a basic recipe, feel free to add or subtract seasonings to fit your taste buds. Also, I chose red cabbage, but you may use green as well. The red is so colorful and has a lovely taste.


Grilled Cabbage
  1. 1 medium head of cabbage, your favorite type
  2. 2 tbs. olive oil
  3. 1 tsp dried oregano
  4. 1 tsp salt
  5. 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  6. 1/4 tsp black pepper
  1. 1. Rinse and remove outer leaf of cabbage.
  2. 2. Cut 1" thick slices of cabbage. Place on aluminum foil (be sure it is big enough to form a pocket to cover all of the cabbage)
  3. 3. With basting brush, rub cabbage with oil and seasonings.
  4. 4. Cover the cabbage completely with the foil and grill over medium heat. Check every 5 minutes or so to be sure you do not over cook. Cook to desired tenderness.
  1. Notes: You can do this on a counter top grill. Note that you may need to add more olive oil to keep it moist as a table top grill tends to take the liquid out of the cabbage. Feel free to alter this recipe to your liking. I have seen variations that include butter in place of olive oil and adding bacon. My goal is to bring "skinny" options or low-fat ways of preparing food. Also, grilled vegetables of any kind could be easily substituted, the possibilities are endless!
