    About how long would it take on the grill?

    • Skinny Ms.  June 23, 2013

      Job, Approximately 30 minutes…depends also on how close it is to the heat.

    Love cabbage – what a great diffrent way to prepare it!

    I love this recipe! I skipped the caraway seeds, only because I didn't have any. I eat the roasted cabbage by itself as a side dish, & I add it to soups/stews. The cabbage is also a nice addition to other roasted veggies, like broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, celery, onions & garlic.

    I just made this, very tasty! I didn't have caraway seeds so I used sesame seeds. Tasted great. Thanks for the recipe.

    I made this tonight, & it was fabulous! My husband is not a fan of cabbage, but he devoured it! Great recipe!

    This was amazing, but I wanted more than one wedge. Is that all you should eat when doing the 2 day detox or can you eat as much as you want?

    • SkinnyMs  May 9, 2014

      Lori, You can eat as much as you want.

    Besides adding flavor, the caraway seeds help control the gassines that can accompany cabbage. (Caraway seeds are so effective that it is often brewed as a tea, and given to colicky babies to relieve gas pain.)

    I loved it! I needed to almost double the coating as I love Dijon! I am going to serve it as part of an Hawaiian meal.

  11. Denise  June 23, 2015

    If roasting in the oven, what temperature would i use? Also could it be foi wrapped and made in the slow cooker while I am at work?

    • SkinnyMs  June 23, 2015

      Denise, 400 degrees for the oven. I can't say for sure about using the slow cooker for this recipe. If you have a warmer that comes on when the time is up, it should work. I would cook on low for sure. Thanks!

    I substituted greek yogurt for the olive oil. Also added a little soy sauce and worcestershire and cooked it on the grill. Amazing!

  13. Linda  July 18, 2016

    Beth, how long did you cook it on the grill?

  14. george  January 8, 2017

    We at time, sub soy sauce for the salt but everyone loves it! even the kids
