|roasted cabbage with gorganzola|
sheena of the little red house gives you great advice on why cabbages are such a cool food and why they are so healthy, especially purple/red ones ... i was sold, so will buy the more antioxidant rich, happy coloured purple ones from now on!
the recipe is a simple one that will take 10 minutes of prep and 30ish minutes cooking time ... awesome ;) perfect for weeknight dinners in my house when i am always tired by the time i come to whip up dinner with little thought until opening the fridge and freezer expecting a dinner to transform in front of my eyes. it never does, but this is my life 90% of evenings ... definitely need to work on some organisation in this area, i may head to pinterest later this evening to find some ideas!
|chop up thick chunks of the cabbage, and apply oil, salt, and pepper|
|roast in the oven, then chunk over the gorganzola|
|the finished roasted cabbage :)|
outcome: YU-UM! sooo much better than steamed or sautéed cabbage. this will definitely be a go-to for week night dinners, especially now i know the beneficial antioxidants of the humble cabbage. even the peeps loved the change in cabbage ... and when the peeps enjoy a new variation on a vegetable, you know the recipe's a keeper ;)
my thanks to sheena of the little red house for enlightening me with regards to the virtues of cabbage! she has an amazing blog with heaps of recipes using whole foods so i will definitely be back to try more wholesome (and not so) recipes in the very near future :)
