Grilled Napa Cabbage with Chinese Mustard Glaze and Scallions

  • 3 tablespoons hot Chinese mustard
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon finely grated garlic
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 2 small heads napa cabbage (about 2 pounds total)
  • 1 large bunch scallions, roots trimmed (if scallions are thick, cut them in half lengthwise)

Method

  1. Heat grill to high. Mix together mustard, agave nectar, 1 teaspoon oil, the garlic, and basil. Cut cabbage lengthwise into quarters, leaving core intact. Brush cabbage and scallions with remaining 2 teaspoons oil.

  2. Grill cabbage, flat side down, 3 minutes. Flip, and continue to grill until charred. Remove from grill. Add scallions to grill, and cook until partially charred, flipping halfway through cooking, about 2 minutes total.

  3. Brush cabbage and scallions on all sides with mustard glaze. Cut scallions lengthwise into thirds. Arrange cabbage on a platter, and top with scallions.
