The Power of Two

Sometimes the greatest dishes are also a gift of simplicity. My husband happened upon this 'recipe' for the grill about a year ago and we've enjoyed it many times since. Chorizo infuses green cabbage with spicy goodness and tasty moisture in this no-fuss dish.

Chorizo & Cabbage
Makes two to three servings

1/2 pound ground chorizo
1 large green cabbage


1. Remove and discard core from cabbage. Roll and shape a piece of foil into a coil that will fit the base of the cabbage and keep it level during grilling.

2. Heat chorizo briefly in a frying pan to release natural juices - about five minutes.

3. Pack chorizo tightly into cabbage opening and place on foil coil, in grill. Cook on medium low heat for approximately 50 minutes until chorizo is lightly charred on top.

4. Let sit for five to ten minutes. Cut in wedges and serve.
