Red cabbage is a great vegetable to BBQ. I like my vegetable to still have its crunch and not mushy and BBQ red cabbage gives me the best of both world.
I am aware that I write a lot about meat. I am not going to lie I love meat, I do not think I could ever become a vegetarian. Please don’t think I have anything against vegetarian I do not or that I never eat any vegetable, I do. Just as long as it come with a side of meat.
Anyhow, my future daughter in law is vegetarian and I wanted to find a nice new recipe to make for her in the summer. I find that vegetarian get a raw deal when it comes to BBQ season. it is always the readymade meat substitute burger or sausages. I wanted to make sure that we created something nice for all the family to eat together.
The dressing that goes on this BBQ red cabbage is from my Kao Man Gai (chicken and rice) post. Don’t worry the sauce has no chicken in it. The ingredients for the sauce that goes with this chicken dish is suitable for vegetarian and I think vegan too. The sauce works so well together with the Red Cabbage, it adds a bit of spice and meaty flavour you expect from the BBQ. You can also served the sauce with grilled chicken for the meat eater.
