Roasted Cabbage with Cheese
This Roasted Cabbage with Cheese is a delicious and different way to try this often-overlooked cruciferous vegetable.
1 head cabbage (any kind, this also works with radicchio)
1/3 cup olive oil
1/4 cup parsley, finely chopped
2-3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 lemon, zested
1/4 grated parmesan
Salt & Black Pepper
1. Preheat the oven to 450.
2. Cut the cabbage into wedges keeping the head of cabbage connected by the stem end. Lightly drizzle 1-2 tablespoons of the olive oil over the cabbage, season with salt and space the wedges out on a sheet tray. Use two if it is crowded, you want to make sure they brown thoroughly and don't steam.
3. Roast for 5-10 minutes on one side, removed from oven and flip the wedges and bake another 5-10 minutes. You want them to be browned and softened but not mushy or falling apart.
4. Meanwhile, mix the parsley, garlic, and lemon zest in a bowl with the remaining olive oil.
5. Brush the roasted cabbage with the garlic oil and top with grated cheese. Broil for about 2 minutes or until browned and bubbly.
