Of course, it's summer, so you may be delicately wondering whether I've gone completely insane to suggest roasting something, and if it were yesterday or tomorrow I would agree with you. But it is today, and today was a balmy and bewildering 68 degrees in Sacramento, and it was raining. (Sacramento is the place where you can go a whole summer without seeing a single cloud. This is not normal.)
So, in celebration of global warming or Armageddon or whatever's going on out there, we roasted us some cabbage. It was delicious.
Napa cabbage, sliced crosswise about 3 times into wide strips, washed, and dried
Freshly ground white pepper
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Toss the cabbage with a bit of olive oil and arrange on a baking sheet about two layers thick. Roast in the oven for 8-10 minutes, turning halfway through, until some of the leaves start to turn golden brown in spots.
Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and a dusting of white pepper, and serve. Pairs particularly well with quinoa.
