  • 4 baby cabbages, halved
  • 2 lemons, juiced
  • 4 T olive oil
  • 1 T fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • 2 T brown sugar
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 30 g fresh basil

Cooking Instructions

1. Rub the cabbage with half the olive oil and place on a hot grill until softened and well charred but still green, about 10 minutes, turning a few times.

2. Whisk the lemon juice, olive oil, rosemary, brown sugar, salt and pepper together and pour over the cabbage. Toss through the basil and serve immediately.

Cook's note: This light, simple way with cabbage is both inexpensive and chic. The fresh rosemary takes it in a surprisingly bold, and delicious, new direction.
