I love red cabbage and use it any chance I get, salads, stir fries, coleslaw, sauerkraut.
But try roasting red cabbage. This Roasted Red Cabbage with balsamic herb glaze, it has a wonderful texture – it is soft and melts like butter with a slightly crunchy edge. When roasted, it becomes slightly sweeter than it naturally is already is and becomes a perfect accompaniment to any tangy dishes.
This dish I’ve served on a grazing plate topped with crunchy almonds, a tangy home made mayo, turmeric spiced basmati rice.. it would also work well with quinoa, pesto, crackers, fried tempe, a vegan sour cream cheese, crunchy almond bread, sweet potato fries, mustard or other roasted veges or shredded chicken if you are ok with having animal protein.
1 whole head red cabbage, cut in half
4T balsamic vinegar
4T raw honey
50g melted butter
4T olive oil
s&p to taste
handful of each: parsley, dill, thyme, chopped (be generous with the herbs)
2T miso paste
2C hot water
Place cabbage in roasting tray. In a bowl combine together the balsamic, honey, butter, olive oil, herbs & s&p, stir to combine. With a pastry brush or spoon, spoon / brush balsamic glaze mix generously all over cabbage, including the bottom of the cabbage.
In a glass pouring jug, add miso paste and hot water and stir until combined. Pour in bottom of roasting tray and place in oven. Roast cabbage on 160°C for 3-4 hours.
Cut cabbage into quarters and serve as an accompaniment to your main meal or make it the hero on a grazing plate. A wonderfully unique way to enjoy cabbage.
ENJOY WITH LOVE. <3
