Roasted Garlic Lemon Cabbage

This isn’t a “quick side” recipe because it takes a little time in the oven, but otherwise it would be. So simple. So perfect. So freaking good it’s not even right, except it is, and even if you don’t think you like cabbage you should try this because, YASS! What more could I add to an intro? Nada. Here you go.roastedredcab

WHAT YOU NEED
* 1 small head red cabbage
* 2T olive oil
* 3-4T minced garlic
* coarse sea salt
* black pepper
* juice of 1 large lemon

WHAT TO DO
Preheat the oven to 400F.

Cut off the end of the stem of your red cabbage, then cut the cabbage into wedges or slices, about an inch or so thick. Lay these out on a baking sheet in one layer. Spread minced garlic over the top of each slice. Brush or dab each slice with olive oil, carefully, so you don’t brush or rub the garlic off. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste, squeeze the lemon over the cabbage, and then pop the pan in the oven. Roast 30-40 minutes (while you make the rest of your meal!) and serve immediately. Crispy and garlicky on the outside, and then more and more luscious with each layer. What else could you ask of a side dish? Again, nada.
