Roasted Cabbage Wedges

I made this recipe for St. Patrick's Day. I was a little worried that the little boys wouldn't like it. Boy was I wrong! Matthew has asked me to never make red cabbage again. He wants Green Cabbage Wedges from now on. He wants it today, tomorrow, and the next day, and the day after that. I found this recipe on line-- see the link at the bottom.


1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tsp sugar
1 medium head green cabbage
3 Tbsp vegetable oil
2 tsp balsamic vinegar

Put the oven rack to the upper middle position. Place a cookie sheet on the rack and heat the oven to 450 degrees. Combine salt, pepper, and sugar in a small bowl. Quarter the cabbage through the core and cut each quarter into 1 inch wedges, leaving the core intact. (There will be about 16 wedges.) Brush the cabbage wedges all over with the oil and then sprinkle them with the salt mixture.

Arrange the cabbage wedges on the hot cookie sheet. Roast until the cabbage is tender and lightly browned around the edges-- about 20-25 minutes. Drizzle the cabbage with the balsamic vinegar. And then enjoy!
