Lemon-Garlic Marinated Cabbage Wedges


– 1 small head green cabbage (about 2 pounds) – 5 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil – 2 tablespoons red-wine vinegar – 2 tablespoons lemon juice


– 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard – 1/4 teaspoon grated garlic – 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper – 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided – 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves

Step 1

Preheat the Oven:Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil and place it in the oven. Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C).

Step 2

Prepare the Cabbage:Remove any wilted or damaged outer leaves from the cabbage. Cut the head into 8 wedges, leaving the root end intact to help the wedges stay together.

Step 3

Make the Marinade:In a medium bowl, whisk together 5 tablespoons of olive oil, red-wine vinegar, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, grated garlic, ground pepper.

Step 4

Marinate the Cabbage:Place the cabbage wedges in two gallon-size zip-top plastic bags, dividing them evenly. Pour the remaining dressing from the medium bowl into the bags.

Step 2

Roast the Cabbage:Carefully remove the preheated baking sheet from the oven. Arrange the marinated cabbage wedges on the sheet in a single layer.
