Our farm share provided us with our first (of many) heads of cabbage this past weekend. Last year, I got so sick of it that I started leaving it behind at the pickup location. I just had no idea what to do with it and they kept getting bigger each week. We got sick of coleslaw really fast and I tried making soups with it, but it just wasn’t hitting the spot. This roasted cabbage is pretty tasty when served with pierogi and kielbasa and would delicious on a cold day. I’m going to try my hardest not to let any go to waste this year so I’d love to hear your recipes and suggestions.
- 1 large head of green cabbage
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
- handful of fresh cilantro, chopped
- salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Slice cabbage into 8 wedges, making sure to keep a part of the core intact with each wedge and place on a cookie sheet lined with tinfoil. In a small dish or mason jar, mix together the remaining ingredients. Use a pastry brush to brush the both sides of the cabbage with the olive oil mixture and season generously with salt and fresh ground black pepper. Roast for 15 minutes on each side.
