oxheart cabbage



rapeseed oil



white wine vinegar







Preparation method

  • Cut the cabbage in half and remove enough of the outer leaves until you are left with half a head of cabbage that fits on the grill.
  • Rub the cut side of the cabbage with the oil and salt.
  • Place the cut side onto the grill over hot charcoal and grill to create a browned diamond pattern.
  • Turn over and grill the other side while rolling the cabbage until it’s cooked.
  • The core can still be raw but it should be warm.
  • Remove the hard core of the cabbage.
  • Dress the grilled cabbage with the vinegar, pepper, salt, and oil.
  • Allow to marinate for a few minutes for the vinegar to infuse the warm cabbage.

Serving suggestions

  • As a component in a dish with rice and grilled fish.
  • Sliced in a warm salad with other vegetables, or as a warm component in a cold salad.
  • As a basis for a stack in which multiple ingredients are stacked on top of one another.
