Recipe from Six Seasons by Joshua McFadden| Serves 4 | Takes approx 15 minutes
For this recipe I would switch out the clove garlic and take advantage of the new Green Garlic from this week’s share. It is much milder so you will have to play with that to get it to the flavor you like.
1 lb Green Cabbage, quartered, cored, and cut into thick wedges
2 Garlic cloves or green garlic, smashed and peeled
Kosher Salt and freshly ground Black Pepper
Juice of 1/2 Lemon
2 to 3 TB unsalted Butter, at room temp
1/2 tsp Thyme leaves (or 3/4 tsp Thyme Salt in place of fresh thyme and kosher salt)
Bring 1/2 inch of water to a boil in a large saucepan. Add the cabbage, garlic and 1 tsp salt. Cover and steam-simmer rapidly. After about a minute, uncover, stir the cabbage around so it’s getting evenly steamed (it’s ok if some of the leave fall off the wedges), add a touch more water if necessary, cover, and cook until the cabbage is mostly tender but still has some crunch, 4 to 6 minutes total depending on your cabbage. Drain the cabbage well, give it a quick chop or two to make it easier to eat, and oil it into a bowl. Season with the lemon juice, butter, thyme and several twists of pepper.
