Roasted Cabbage with Lemon


1 medium sized head of green cabbage

2 tablespoons olive oil

2-3 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice

Generous amount of sea salt and fresh ground black pepper

Lemon slices, for serving cabbage (optional)



Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Coat a roasting pan with olive oil.

Cut the head of the cabbage into 8 same-size wedges, cutting through the core and the stem end. Then carefully trim the core strip and stem from each wedge and arrange wedges in a single layer on the roasting pan (leave some space around them as much as you can).

Whisk together the olive oil and lemon juice. Then use a pastry brush to brush the top sides of each cabbage wedge with the mixture and season generously with salt and fresh ground black pepper. Turn cabbage wedges carefully, then brush the second side with the olive oil/lemon juice mixture and season with salt and pepper. 

Roast cabbage for about 15 minutes, or until the side touching the pan is nicely browned. Then turn each wedge carefully and roast 10-15 minutes more, until the cabbage is nicely browned. Serve hot, with additional lemon slices to squeeze lemon juice if desired.
