Roasted cabbage with onion dressing for weight loss
In this recipe, we will give the cabbage a different handling and cook it in such a way that it remains in whole pieces. Roasting cabbage slices without falling apart is so easy. The trick in the first place is to leave them with the core intact and let everyone cut it when they are eating. Most recipes tell you to cut it, but the suggestion is that you don't. The leaves stay together much better with the core, so it is very easy to grill them.
Second, don't try to make the slices or wedges too small. Cut a head in half and then cut each half into quarters (or use just one medium, depending on how much you are serving), larger ones hold up better and cook more evenly.
Third, this recipe goes perfectly well with olive oil, salt, and pepper, but if you have a bottle of garlic-infused olive oil, it will take the whole dish to another wonderful level. Olive oil with garlic is also very healing.
