Pressed very thin and fried until crisp, they have the savory addictiveness of a salty snack, but enough substance to make a meal.
'yogurt' on Serious Eats
Deeply fragrant with smoky charred edges, cabbage takes on a nutty, sweet flavor when grilled over blazing hot coals with a great texture that's simultaneously tender and crisp.
