Step 1

Oven to 425ºF.

Start with a whole head of cabbage and remove a couple of the outer layers. Rinse the head as best you can. Then cut off the stem part of the cabbage and quarter the cabbage.

Tear off 4 pieces of foil that are long enough to cover and seal in each wedge of cabbage completely. Place each wedge on its own piece of foil and create a pouch.

Place 1 to 2 tablespoons of salted butter or butter substitute in each pouch. Mince 2 cloves of garlic, more if you like it more garlicky) and put about a half a clove in each pouch. If you are using pre-minced garlic, I would say about 1 to 2 teaspoons in each pouch.

Salt and pepper the cabbage, then roll the foil pouches tightly closed. I place an extra layer around the other way to ensure it was creating an adequate steaming pocket. Place on a baking sheet and leave in the oven for approximately 1 hour or until cabbage is nice and tender. Remove from oven, add additional salt or pepper to taste and enjoy.
