like most veggies, cabbage is way better grilled; and these grilled cabbage steaks with spicy cilantro-lime dressing bring cabbage to a whole new level.
  • for the cabbage steaks:
  • 1 head of cabbage {green or purple}
  • ¼ c coconut oil, melted
  • for the spicy cilantro-lime dressing:
  • ¼ c freshly squeezed lime juice {3-4 small limes}
  • 2-3 cloves garlic
  • 10-12 sprigs of cilantro
  • ½ tsp pink sea salt
  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper
  • ¼ c extra virgin olive oil
  1. Heat grill.
  2. While the grill heats you can start prepping the cabbage. Remove the toughest outer layer from the cabbage.
  3. Then cut the cabbage into 8 evenly sized wedges. Keeping the inner core intact.
  4. Lightly brush the wedges with melted coconut oil.
  5. Place the wedges on the heated grill and cover. Cook for 5-6 minutes or until the edges are blackened and the inner cabbage begins to soften. Then, turn the wedges over, cover the grill, and cook for an additional 5-6 minutes on the other side.
  6. Once the outer layers are charred to your liking you can take it off the grill. The inner core should still have some firmness to it.
  7. Then mix the dressing. Combine the lime juice, garlic, cilantro, salt, cayenne, and olive oil in a blender and blend until well mixed.
  8. Place the cabbage steaks on a plate and drizzle or pour the dressing over the top of the cabbage. Serve and enjoy!
*these are best if enjoyed straight off the grill, but if you have leftovers I suggest turning them into a grilled, chop salad topped with the leftover dressing.
