I’ve been downing the heads of red cabbage recently. Cheap, filling and super delicious! I don’t even miss the pizza. The house fills with roasted garlic smell and by the time it’s done, I’m diving into heaven.
Pre-heat oven to 400 F.
Slice the cabbage to 1/4 – 1/2 inch thick. You’ll need two tray pans. Lay them on the tray.
Mix up fresh garlic. I bought a nice garlic press from Bed Bath and Beyond. It was the European brand and comes with a red silicone cleaning tool. Works awesome. I put at least 5 cloves of garlic through that, probably more and mix in a small bowl with about 1/2 cup olive oil.
Use a basting brush, my favorite silicone, also. Baste the slabs of cabbage with that oil. Sprinkle salt on. Flip over the slabs. Baste and salt again.
I also add halved leeks to the pan and work the oil into the layers.
400 F for 40 minutes. Make sure you leave it in til it’s nice and browned or however much you want it browned.
Repeat! You can get faster at this by practicing, and enjoy more often! It’s what I consider an easy part of my 2017 winter routine.
The leeks are good chopped and used on salads. This will give your salad that "French’s" Onion flavor! I put them in any type of salad, even taco salad.
I re-heat cabbage throughout the week for an easy add-on veggie to whatever my random meals happen to be.
