Veggies are so good! By now you have probably gathered that I love them. They’re so versatile and can be both light AND hearty at the same time, which is exactly what these Tahini Roasted Cabbage Wedges achieve.
Just like my Smoky Roasted Cauliflower Steaks, these wedges can be either a satisfying main course, or a delicious side dish! They’re full of flavour and are roasted delicious perfection. You get those outer leaves that are all crispy, yet the centre of the cabbage isn’t too soft and retains a bit of bite. So say goodbye to the days when purple cabbage was all boring and one-note; there’s a whole symphony going on over here!
I started by cutting half a head of cabbage into four nice and thick wedges. Purple cabbage is such a gorgeous vegetable! Not only is the colour amazing, but all of the layers are just so pretty.
After the wedges were ready to go, I got the sliced tahini rub alllllll ready to go. I love tahini, or sesame seed paste, a lot, and have a big tub of it in my pantry, so I’m always looking for ways to use it in my cooking! And on this cabbage it is magic🙌 I mixed some of it with a BUNCH of different middle-eastern inspired spices that all work together so well! This forms a delicious rub/paste that gets slathered onto the cabbage.
And by slathered I mean I definitely got in there with my hands and gave this cabbage a nice massage😂 You gotta make sure to get that tahini rub into every nook and cranny for maximum flavour! The cabbage then goes into a nice and hot oven to get crisp and caramelized on the outside, and tender but not to soft on the outside. So good!
As aforementioned (wow look at these fancy words), these wedges are so good by theme selves with a bit of hummus, as a side with some protein, or as part of a bowl! I even had mine with some tomato sauce and it was super tasty😋 They have so much flavour, an amazing texture, and look gorgeous with a bit more tahini drizzled on top! Hope you enjoy😊
