In case someone is preparing dinner, and want to serve something new and exciting, or to have a healthy snack then this recipe could be a perfect choice.

The main ingredient in this recipe is cabbage. As a matter of fact, cabbage is on the list of low-carb green vegetables. And it is recommended by the American Diabetes Association.

The slow-roasted wedges are the perfect starting course substitute for the usual appetizer salad. In order to prepare it correctly, people need to leave the core intact so that the wedges will keep their shape.

Caraway comes with earthy flavors, like a combination of fennel and cumin seed. Use a small heavy skillet or a mortar and pestle in order to crush the caraway seeds.

Necessary Ingredients

  • Crushed caraway seeds – 1 tsp.
  • Grated orange rind – 1 tsp.
  • Chopped fresh dill – 2 tbsp.
  • Crushed red pepper – ½ tsp.
  • Cooking spray
  • Divided, kosher salt – 3/8 tsp.
  • Ground turmeric – ¼ tsp.
  • Olive oil – 1 tbsp.
  • Softened, unsalted butter – 3 tbsp.
  • One head of green cabbage – 3 lb.

How to Prepare This Dish

The first thing is that this dish serves 8 people and its serving size is 1 cabbage wedge. To start preheat the oven to around 350°F.

Then in a small bowl add butter, caraway, turmeric, rind, salt, and pepper as mentioned above in the ingredients. Leave it for around 5 minutes or until it gets firm.

Remove the outer leaves of the cabbage, and then cut the cabbage into quarters but make sure to do this vertically.

Next, cut each quarter in half to 8 wedges. Do not touch the core of the cabbage. With the olive oil brush the cabbage wedges evenly. Then, heat a big skillet, and coat the pan with cooking spray.

Put the cabbage wedges in the pan. Cook them for 3 minutes on each side or until it is turning brown. Put the wedges and cut the sides up on a baking sheet. Then take the butter mixture and spread half of it over the cut sides.

Bake it at 350°F for around 25 minutes. After that time passes, remove the pan and put the remaining half mixture over the cabbage wedges. Put it back at the same temperature for another 20 minutes.

After that time passes, sprinkle the remaining salt and dill. Serve this dish immediately. Try this tasty, exciting, and healthy dish. Eat well, feel satisfied and stay healthy.
