Roasted Savoy Cabbage

Savoy cabbage

Savoy is the most beautiful cabbage of them all — and downright tasty, too.

1 head savoy cabbage
1/4 – 1/3 cup olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper
Lemon juice to taste
Dash cayenne or chili flakes (optional)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and grease a rimmed baking sheet. Cut the cabbage into quarters vertically and carve out the core. Cut each quarter in two lenghthwise and thinly slice.

Place the cabbage in a large bowl, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt, and toss to coat evenly. Insert in the oven and bake for 15 minutes, stirring halfway through, until cooked thoroughly and golden brown in places. Be very careful not to burn it.

Remove from oven, sprinkle with black pepper, dress with a touch of lemon juice, and serve. Like a little kick? Sprinkle with a tiny bit of cayenne or chili flakes.
