GRILLED CABBAGE

REVIEW BY JULIE M. : DELICIOUS! I SKIPPED THE PARMESAN BUT OTHERWISE MADE IT AS WRITTEN FOR ONE WEDGE OF CABBAGE. MY HUSBAND RAVED ABOUT IT AND ASKED FOR MORE BACON.
It seems like every year, the internet has a new darling brassica. You all remember back in 2010, when it seemed like the entire world had just discovered Brussels sprouts for the first time, right? Or maybe the year after, when it was kale in everything from pizzas to smoothies? What about last year, the year of the charred broccoli?

Really, I think all it’ll take is to convince a few people to go into their backyards, throw some cabbages on the grill, and feed them to friends. Word of their deliciousness will spread. I’m sure of it.
