Parmesan Roasted Cabbage Wedges elevates humble cabbage to rock star status! It’s is a dish suited for your finest dinner party and it’s so easy to make!
Cabbage is such a humble vegetable. The price often tops out at perhaps 50 to 60 cents per pound.
Cabbage generally makes a splashy appearance in the produce department around St. Patrick’s Day calling out to you to make corned beef and cabbage and then will settle] back in as an often unnoticed, “pick me, pick me!” type of vegetable the rest of the year.
I love cabbage and it’s nice to have it around, but a large head can go A LONG WAY.
We had a half head left from a potato and cabbage soup extravaganza from my mother-in-law’s recent visit. (BTW, she makes the BEST creamy, slightly spicy potato cabbage soup!) The soup fed the three of us for a week and fed the freezer for a future soup dinner for hubby and me.
This Creamy Potato, Kielbasa and Kale Soup is pretty much her delicious soup! Simply leave out the kielbasa and sub the kale out for cabbage.
Who doesn’t love being able to repurpose food and pull it back from the compost pile brink? A trim here and there of this forlorn cabbage and the removal of one or two leaves revealed a vegetable that was eager to be desired and used once again.
How to make Parmesan Roasted Cabbage Wedges:
- Cut the half head into four wedges.
- Brushed with melted butter, then coat the cut sides in Parmesan cheese.
- Place on a baking sheet lined with non-stick aluminum foil.
- Bake for 30 minutes, turning halfway through. Some of the Parmesan cheese melted away but the end result was light with a delicate crust around the edges and a lovely, nutty flavor with just the right amount of “cheesiness.”
- The butter browns slightly and makes the perfect light sauce to drizzle back over the cabbage.
- Add some shaved Parmesan and MWAAHHHHHH! An often unnoticed, “pick me, pick me” type of vegetable elevated to rock star status!
