Beautifully charred napa cabbage paired with a rich, umami miso butter. Suitable decadence for the humble vegetable, I’d say.
Searing cabbage like a steak not only gives you incredible charred notes, but the intense heat locks up all those juices, keeping each leaf juicy and crunchy. It’s relatively simple, but made to impress.
My Chili Garlic Smashed Brussels Sprouts is another example of a dish where the humble vegetable takes center stage. As in this recipe, charring really helps the vegetable take on a new, powerful dimension of flavor.
