Roasted Cabbage Slices

Have you ever made something for dinner knowing full well that it probably wasn't going to taste that great, but since it was good for you, you'd make it anyway? As bad as that sounds, that's how dinner started last night. After my hubby and I got back from the gym, we set to work making some grilled chicken and roasted cabbage for dinner.

We figured the cabbage would be edible, but we never expected to enjoy it as much as we did! In fact, I made 4 cabbage slices for dinner (thinking we could have some leftover for lunches today) and it was all gone! I dished his plate, and as we were eating, he laughed, said "this is actually really good!", and got up to get a third slice. We will definitely be coming back to this one soon. :)

We started with wedges that were about 1/2 inch thick. 
Lay them out on a baking sheet that's lightly coated in olive oil.

Try to cut the wedges to the same width so they cook evenly.

Lightly spray tops with olive oil. (If you don't have an oil spritzer, you can also just brush it on lightly.)
Generously sprinkle with freshly cracked black pepper & sea salt.
(You can add garlic and other spices, too, if you'd like!)

Bake in a 400 degree oven for about 15-20 minutes or until bottoms are starting to turn golden brown.
Carefully flip over so the golden side is on top.

Top again with some more salt & pepper.

{At this point, I also sprinkled on a little fresh Parmesan cheese, but it really didn't need it.}

 Roast another 15-20 minutes until bottom is golden brown and cabbage is soft.
Serve hot.

(We were thinking they would be really good topped with a light sprinkling of fresh lemon juice, too!)

It's surprising how such a simple recipe can bring so much flavor to your meal. :)
