I found a sad little cabbage in the back of my fridge, intended for slaw that never actually happened, having remained there for month, never reaching its fullest potential.  Oh the guilt of it. Then inspiration came from a friend, who suggested, why not try grilling it? Well, why not? So we did. And it was mind-blowing.

This 30 minute, Grilled Cabbage dinner came together so easily, it was almost hard to believe! It’s the perfect weeknight meal for mixed households where some are vegan and some are not- just use whatever sausage you like.

Here we’ve used chicken andouille sausage (very tasty)  but there are also some amazing vegan sausages out there as well! Take your pick.

How to grill cabbage?

  1. Slice the cabbage into ⅓-½ inch thick “steaks”.
  2. Brush both sides with olive oil.
  3. Sprinkle with salt and pepper
  4. Grill over medium high-heat, covered, for 6-8 minutes, until tender, but not collapsing.

Make sure the grill is greased. Brush cabbage steaks with olive oil, salt and pepper and grill each side 6-8 minutes, depending on thickness. Covering the  grill helps.

Description

Grilled Cabbage Steaks with Andouille Sausage- a fast and easy weeknight dinner that can be made in the grill in under 30 minutes! Flavorful and Vegan Adaptable!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 large purple cabbage
  • olive oil for brushing
  • salt and pepper
  • 46  Andouille Sausages  ( I used chicken, feel free to use vegan sausage)

Mustard Seed Vinaigrette:


Instructions

Pre heat grill on high heat.

With the stem side pointing down, using a sharp chefs knife to slice cabbage into thin slices no thicker than ½ inch thick. Cut the core out, making a “v” —  or keep it in for easier grilling.

Clean and grease the grill well. Brush each side of cabbage with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. lower grill to med-high. Add sausages and cabbage. Grill each side of cabbage for 6-8 minutes, closing grill. You want cabbage slightly soft, but not completely collapsing. You can lower heat further, if slices are thicker, to get them to cook through. Grill the sausages until seared and plumped.

Place cabbage steaks down on a large plater. Spoon half of the dressing over top. Slice the sausages in half and steep diagonal and scatter over cabbage. Spoon remaining dressing over sausage.

Garnish with chopped chives and scatter with chive blossoms.


Notes

Feel free  to add other veggies to the mix. An onion would be perfect, or other grill-able veggies. Our grill is small- I kept it simple here.

  1. I cooked these on our Weber grill and used the middle skillet insert to cook the vegan sausages (I used Beyond Meat Kielbasa). The four purple cabbage slices surrounded the pan on the grill and it was a perfect fit. I had troubles getting a consistent 1/2″ slice on the cabbage, though–I probably need to sharpen my knives. In the end it just looked a little “artisan” but otherwise tasted amazing. Like all your recipes, another keeper!

  2. Is there a way to make this in the oven if you don’t have a grill? Could it perhaps be done similar to the spatchcocked chicken + cauliflower sheet pan meal? Thanks!

    1. I think it would be great roasted! Try roasting for 20 minutes at 400. Test cabbage, for tenderness, and continue roasting if need be!
