Last week went well, despite the snow. I met some new people, sold some vegetables, and ate some pastries. That is a market success in my book. This week, I am staying farmside, but you can find Peter at Eastern and Tyler and Lisa at Royal Oak.

Recipe: Quick and Easy Roasted Cabbage
From Inspired Taste
This easy, healthy recipe for roasted cabbage is delicious. As the cabbage roasts in the oven, it browns, turns tender, and becomes sweet. Cabbage may sound boring, but this is one of our favorite side dishes. White cabbage is our favorite for this recipe, but other cabbage varieties will work (roast times may vary).
Our recipe below keeps things simple and roasts the cabbage with oil, salt, and pepper. But, of course, you can always add spices like seasoning blends or fresh herbs.
Serves 4 to 6
- 1 medium head cabbage, about 1 ½ pounds
- 2 tablespoons avocado oil (can use olive oil or oil of choice)
- 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- Heat the oven to 425° Fahrenheit. Prepare a baking sheet — we roast directly on the baking sheet, but for easy clean-up, put down a silicone baking mat or a sheet of parchment paper.
- Prepare the cabbage by cutting it into four wedges and removing the core. Next, slice the wedges into strips about 1/2 inch thick.
- Add the cabbage to the baking sheet and toss with the oil, salt, and pepper. Spread into one layer.
- Roast the cabbage without moving it until it starts browning, about 15 minutes. When you notice the browning, stir the cabbage, spread it back into an even layer, and roast for 5 to 10 more minutes. We enjoy our cabbage deeply browned, so we tend to keep the cabbage in the oven a bit longer.
- Toss with lemon juice, and serve.
