Failed: roasted cabbage

Filed under: almost a recipe — Tags: — anotheryarn @ 12:42 pm

One of my cookbooks has instructions to roast a number of different vegetables.  Cabbage is included in this list, to be roasted in 2″ wedges.  I did this while baking the Vegetable Upside-Down Cake.  I tried to cut the cabbage into 2 inch wedges as recommended, placed them on an oiled baking sheet, brushed oil on the tops and sides and then sprinkled it with salt.  I stirred the cabbage about halfway through and of course none of it stayed in wedges.  Overall it seemed like it was missing something, but I couldn’t figure out what.  It wasn’t a spectacular failure that resulted in inedible veggies (just a couple loose leaves charred to a nice crunchy brown state) but it just wasn’t a very appealing dish either.  We tried it with a sprinkle of balsamic vinegar, (resulting in “now I just taste the vinegar”) and eating it with the cheese sauce (“now I just taste the cheese sauce”).  Oh well, you win some you loose some; I’m glad it wasn’t a time or ingredient intensive experiment.
