I bought a head of cabbage about two weeks ago. Somehow I forgot about it. The poor thing just sat in my vegetable crisper until I found it again last night. All the outer leaves were turning yellow. I had to cook it. I poked around for a recipe and found a whole bunch of websites that said to treat your cabbage like a gigantic brussell sprout and roast it. A fellow Twitter peep suggested I roast the cabbage with a bit of olive oil, Herbes de Provence and sea salt. Awesome idea but unfortunately I couldn't find any Herbes de Provence. Next best thing....olive oil and lemon.
1 head of green cabbage
Salt and Pepper
Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees.
Remove dirty outer leaves of the cabbage. Cut the cabbage in half and then slice each half into quarters. I removed the core from mine but next time I will leave it intact. My wedges were falling apart mid roast.
Place the wedges on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper on both sides. Roast for 20-30 minutes, flipping halfway through cooking time, until edges are a bit brown.
Remove from oven and squeeze lemon juice over the wedges to taste.
I drowned mine in lemon juice. It was so good and mouth puckering next to some BBQ grilled chicken. It made the house smell a little funny but I'd definitely would roast cabbage again. Next time I'll throw in some bacon and leave it in a little longer to get a darker brown leaf.
