Cabbage Liked You’ve Never Had It Before

Roasted Purple Cabbage

Don’t say you don’t like cabbage until you have had it cooked like this!  I rarely cook cabbage.  I usually use cabbage for making coleslaw and have made some delicious stuffed cabbage but this recipe for roasting cabbage really gave me a new appreciation for cabbage.  Not only was it so delicious but it made a pretty presentation and twirled up on my fork just like pasta.  It was easy to prepare with little effort and is a definite repeat for my dinner table.

Ingredients List:

Olive oil spray

1 – large head purple cabbage

Kosher salt

coarse ground black pepper

garlic powder

caraway seeds (a little is all you need)

fennel seeds (a little is all you need)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees

Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and generously spray with olive oil spray.  Starting at the core of the cabbage, cut the cabbage into flat rounds about 1/2 inch thick.  Place the rounds onto the prepared baking sheet.  Be aware that the outer layers of the cabbage is going to want to fall off.  I used the blade of my knife and the palm of my hand to gently transfer the cabbage to the baking sheet.  Spray the cabbage with olive oil spray.  Season evenly with the salt, pepper, and garlic powder.  Lightly sprinkle the caraway seeds and the fennel seeds all over.  Place in the preheated oven and roast for about 30-35 minutes.  The outer leaves should have a little char on them and the inner portions of the cabbage should be tender but still firm. 

Serve and Enjoy!!!
