How can something simple like this be so tasty? I’m talking about a cabbage roasted in the oven with a drizzle of oil and salt and pepper. Crispy, caramelised, smokey flavour on the edges of the cabbage and in contrast, buttery and sweet inside. It is not only inexpensive and super simple to make but also does all good things to your body.
Cabbage is a powerful antioxidant and an abundant source of vitamin C (actually richer than oranges) and vitamin K (good for your bone health). It also contains a good amount of minerals like potassium important for controlling heart rate and blood pressure, manganese, iron, and magnesium. Cabbage has a number of anti-cancer compounds, like lupeol, sinigrin, and sulforaphane, which are known to inhibit the growth of tumors. It is often used as a treatment for constipation, stomach ulcers, headaches, obesity, skin disorders, eczema, jaundice, scurvy, rheumatism, arthritis, gout, eye disorders, heart diseases, aging, and Alzheimer’s disease.
1/2 tsp of smoked paprika
1 tbsp coconut oil
salt and pepper to taste

Place wedged on a baking sheet. Toss with coconut oil, smoked paprika and season with salt and pepper. Roast in the preheated oven (200) for 30-40 minutes until the edges of the cabbage is golden brown. Remove from the oven and transfer to a serving plate. Squeeze a lemon over the salad. Sprinkle crumbled feta and drizzle olive oil for garnish.
