A quick and unusual way to enjoy cabbage. #putaneggonit

Garlic Grilled Cabbage with Sunny Side Up Egg-001

I’ve got to be honest. There has never been a day when I’ve thought to myself, “I can’t wait to have some cabbage.”

Cabbage and I just don’t have that kind of relationship.

I like it just fine in the occasional few bites of coleslaw, although I’m super picky about coleslaw and if I don’t like it after one bite, I won’t eat anymore.

I like it just fine in the occasional stir-fry, where it easily picks up other flavors from the dish.

And I like it just fine when it’s stuffed, but the kids don’t and it’s just too much work to make just for me.

… now seeking applicants to share stuffed cabbage with …

But I never stop and think about cabbage.

All that being said, it, of course, does have some health merits that are worth an eat every now and again (one of the more nutrient-packed vegetables, it is said to be an anti-inflammatory, have tons of Vitamin C and may even help prevent cancer) … so here we are.

The recipe for this cabbage could not be simpler.



Top with a runny egg.

Because while I may not regularly sing the praises of cabbage, I do, however, think a runny egg makes everything awesome.

See Exhibit A. Exhibit B.

When in doubt, just #putaneggonit.

Putting an egg on it can definitely get me excited about a vegetable. Any vegetable. Even cabbage.

I love cabbage — a carry-over from my Polish grandmother who cooked it constantly when we were growing up, I think! And lo and behold, I have half a head just chillin’ in my fridge right now. :) Know what I’m making with dinner tonight. Thanks, Cate!
