Balsamic Roasted Cabbage
“These roasted cabbage wedges with honey and balsamic vinegar make an attractive and healthy side dish that's also very easy to prepare. You can use red or green cabbage—or make a double batch with one of each for a pretty presentation.”
½ teaspoon ground pepper
5 tablespoons olive oil, divided
¾ teaspoon salt, divided
1 large head red or green cabbage, cut into 10 or 12 wedges
2 teaspoons honey
4 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, divided
1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves (optional)
1Preheat oven to 425°F. Combine pepper, 3 tablespoons oil and ½ teaspoon salt in a small bowl. Brush evenly over all sides of cabbage wedges.
2Combine honey, 2 tablespoons vinegar and the remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a small bowl; set aside.
3Arrange the cabbage wedges, cut-side down, on a baking sheet. Roast until they start to brown, about 20 minutes. Brush with half the honey-balsamic mixture; turn over and brush with the remaining mixture. Continue roasting until browned and tender, but still holding their shape, about 15 minutes more. Drizzle with the remaining 2 tablespoons vinegar and sprinkle with thyme, if desired. Sprinkle with the remaining ¼ teaspoon salt. Serve immediately.
