Paleo Roasted Cabbage

If you like cabbage, this is a delicious, cancer fighting, low calorie lunch or side vegetable. If you don’t like cabbage, this may change your mind.

It pairs well with a multitude of herbs and spices including caraway, celery seed, garlic, chives, ginger, dill mustard and black pepper.

What can you make with cabbage? ColeslawSauerkraut, soups, Vegan Stew with Mash and Cabbage (not Paleo), stuffed cabbage leaves, in a stir fry, shredded raw in a salad or on taco’s and steamed as a side vegetable.

Being in a log cabin in the middle of the woods and working in front of my log fire with my two little fluffy dogs at my side, I really don’t want to leave my little patch of heaven to go to the store. So, I thought I would try having them deliver my groceries.

I buy 98% of everything I need from Amazon Prime (free shipping and like Christmas every time a box arrives), but during the winter, I still have to go to the store for vegetables. In the summer I just get everything from the local farm stand. They have been there since late 1800 and something. The grandkids run it and they have grandkids of their own. You can imagine, they have really perfected the art of vegetable growing and their produce tastes like nothing I have ever tried before.

I always have coleslaw available because it is raw and so nutritious, so I ordered a lovely green organic cabbage. Two of them arrived in my delivery. So what do you do when life gives you cabbages? You make cabbage!!

This recipe will delight even the most fussy person in your family. The mustard sauce is so tasty if you make your mayo. Really so much fresher and creamier than store bought. Make enough for a few weeks and see how just the smallest amount can transform a bland vegetable.
