  • 1/2 head green or red cabbage
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup packed parsley, mint, shoots, or a mix, chopped (optional)
  • 1/4 cup Garlic Yogurt Sauce


  • Heat oil in a cast iron skillet over medium heat.
  • Cut a head of cabbage in half. Reserve one half for another recipe. For the other half, chop off any knobby end of the core, but keep the core intact. Cut into 4 wedges.
  • When the oil is smoking, add the wedges to the skillet with each piece lying flat on one of its cut sides. Season with 1/2 tsp. salt. Saute undisturbed until the bottom side is blackened, 6-7 minutes. Flip the wedges and cook undisturbed until that side is blackened, 6-7 minutes.
  • While the cabbage is cooking, make the yogurt sauce. Combine lemon juice, garlic, yogurt, salt, and pepper in a jar or bowl. Add 1 Tbsp. water at a time until you reach desired consistency, mixing after each addition.
  • To serve, season cabbage with more salt if needed. Drizzle yogurt sauce over cabbage wedges and top with chopped herbs or shoots if using.
