Roasted Garlic Cabbage

DSCN1332.JPGCabbage is one of the cutest plants to me. (yes plants can be cute) It’s like a little present in the middle just waiting for you to pick it. Cabbage gets a lot of hate for it’s taste,but it’s probably because those people just haven’t cooked it right. 🙂

Because we have been getting so much cabbage from our garden, we have been trying it several different ways. We usually just sautee it, but I really wanted to try it roasted.

I  use olive oil and garlic 99.99% of the time when I cook vegetables, so why would I not use them when roasting the cabbage?!

So simple-just a few ingredients, a little bit of time in the oven, and out it comes! This is the perfect side dish.

Ingredients

  • 4 Tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic
  • 1 head of cabbage
  • Sprinkle salt and pepper
Optional Toppings:
  • Chives or Green onion for a garnish
  • Dijon mustard (trust me on this one)

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  • Cut cabbage into about 1/2 inch wedges, leaving the core in. This prevents the cabbage from totally falling apart.
  • Brush half of the olive oil on aluminum foil wherever you place a wedge.
  • Mix the rest of the olive oil with the garlic and then brush on the tops of the cabbage.
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes.
  • Bake  until the edges are brown. Feel free to cook the cabbage until it’s much browner and crispy than mine.
  • If your feeling fancy, sprinkle with chives or green onion.
  • Dip the cabbage in Dijon mustard for extra flavor. 🙂
  • DSCN1348.JPGEnjoy my first non-sweet recipe! 🙂
