Stuff & Nonsense: Roasted Cabbage, Sweet and Tender

Roasted Cabbage, Sweet and Tender

It's spring, when this cook's tummy yearns for salad. And what goes in salad? Red cabbage, among other things. Problem was, I bought an enormous red cabbage -- far more than could go in salad -- and was at a loss as to what to do with it. Mad Googling led me to Martha Stewart's recipe for "Roasted Cabbage Wedges" and, well, I never knew cabbage could be this delicious!

This is such a simple recipe -- slice your cabbage thickly (despite the title, there are no cabbage "wedges" in this recipe), brush with olive oil, season with salt and pepper, roast in a 400°F oven for 40 minutes. The recipe calls for fennel/caraway seeds, but I forgot to add it and can't say I missed it at all.

Roasting Cabbage for One

If your cabbage, like mine, starts to get a bit too crispy around the edges well short of the 40 minute mark, just cover it with a piece of foil and walk away. It will be fine.

The cabbage was just lovely. A little crispy around the edges with a sweet, mellow middle I wouldn't have expected of cabbage. I have to ask, is there a vegetable roasting won't improve?
