Roasted Cabbage With Lemon

It's Friday! Time for another Your Recipe-My Kitchen post.
This is another "Pinned it and Did it" recipe. 

I love roasting vegetables, It's my favorite to make veges,  I roast cauliflower, asparagus, kale chips, zucchini chips... but I never roasted cabbage before.  So I was real excited to give this recipe from Kalyn's Kitchen a try.  I have had it saved for a while and I don't know why it took me so long to try it but it was so good.  I actually already bought another head of cabbage so I can make this again this week.   Kalyn mentions making it with a red cabbage -I have to remember that one when I go to the store, I bet that would taste great too.  If you love roasted vegetables like I do or if you are a big cabbage fan go ahead and give this Roasted Cabbage with Lemon a try I bet you'll love it too.  Enjoy!!

I'm always looking for cooking tips - what is your favorite vegetable to roast in the oven?

recipe adapted from Kalyn's Kitchen
What you need:
1 medium-sized head of  cabbage
2 tablespoons olive oil
2-3 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
 kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper

What you do:
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.  Spray a roasting pan with non-stick spray .

Cut the cabbage into 8 equal sized wedges. Then trim the core strip and stem from each wedge and arrange wedges in a single layer on your  roasting pan.
Whisk together the olive oil and lemon juice. Then use a pastry brush to brush the top sides of each cabbage wedge with the mixture and season generously with salt and pepper. Turn cabbage wedges carefully, then brush the second side with the mixture and season with salt and pepper.

Roast the cabbage wedges for about 15 minutes, or until the side touching the pan is nicely browned. Then carefully flip the wedges and roast 10-15 minutes more, or until the cabbage is nicely browned and cooked through.

Linking up to these happening parties!
