If in doubt about cooking a vegetable, roast it! I find that many of my childhood vegetables that were boiled to an inch of their lives, are so much better roasted.
Cauliflower and broccoli in particular. So I tried roasting cabbage. So simple and yet so tasty! When I was playing around with this we ate plates of it just by itself! So I am in two minds whether to call this a side or main vegetable dish! You can really play around with the flavourings of roast cabbage. I am currently torn between two flavours of roast cabbage, one just slathered with oil and garlic, the other covered with whole-grain mustard with a dash of lemon. Yummy!
The cabbage can be cut into slices or wedges, slathered with your flavourings, then roasted. It's that simple!
