I read somewhere recently about baking cabbage and thought that sounded like a great idea! I love taking veggies and baking them in the oven for the crisp and crunchy flavors. I could not remember where I heard or saw this recipe, so I created it on my own.
It was very easy and very cheap to make! The end result tasted like butter and it just melts in your mouth. Not bad for a healthy food!
* 1 head of cabbage
* Extra Virgin Olive Oil
* Fresh garlic cloves (3-4)
* Sea Salt & Black Pepper
DIRECTIONS: Heat oven to 400 degrees. Take the cabbage and peel off the dirty layers on top. Then set the cabbage up on its end and cut 1 inch or thinner pieces from the top down. Don't go too thin or it will break apart. Take your garlic and mash it down then spread all over both sides of the cabbage. Then drizzle olive oil over both sides...it doesn't take a lot. Sprinkle salt & pepper on both sides then place on a non-stick baking sheet. I did not need to spray the baking sheet as the olive oil kept it from sticking.
Place baking sheet in the oven for 25 minutes on one side, then flip over and cook for another 25 minutes. Ovens vary greatly so make sure to check on them the first time you cook them so you don't over do it. When the outside edges are brown and crispy, they are ready.
Serve hot & enjoy!
