Charred and TrueGrilled Cabbage With Yogurt and Mint Recipe

Bushel Vegetables: Cabbage (red or green), garlic, + use Fennel Fronds in the dressing for an herbaceous punch

“Deeply fragrant, with smoky, charred edges, cabbage takes on a nutty, sweet flavor when grilled over blazing-hot coals, and a great texture that’s simultaneously tender and crisp. Its layered structure also makes it the ideal vessel for picking up both smoke flavor from the grill and whatever sauce you choose to serve it with. In this case, we’re going with a light and creamy yogurt dressing, made with plenty of lemon and olive oil.
