Nicely roasted cabbage turns sweet and earthy, with a deliciously silky texture. There's a beautiful balance of flavors here--sweetness from cabbage and apples, brightness from vinegar, and richness from butter.

Serves 8 (serving size: 3/4 cup)


+ Add To Shopping List
2 1/4 pounds green cabbage, core removed and cut into 1-inch cubes
1 cup vertically sliced yellow onion
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
3 cups thinly sliced Honeycrisp or Fuji apple
3 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 tablespoon whole-grain mustard
2 teaspoons toasted caraway seeds
1 tablespoon butter


Hands-on: 10 Minutes
Total: 40 Minutes

1. Preheat oven to 450°.

2. Combine cabbage, onion, oil, sugar, black pepper, and salt in a large bowl; toss to coat. (It's OK if the cubes start to separate.)

3. Divide cabbage mixture between 2 foil-lined jelly-roll pans. Bake at 450° for 20 minutes, stirring and rotating pans after 10 minutes.

4. In the same bowl that you used for the cabbage, combine apple, vinegar, mustard, and caraway seeds; toss to coat.

5. Remove cabbage from oven, and carefully transfer to the bowl with the apple. Add butter; toss gently to combine.

6. Heat broiler to high. Return cabbage mixture to pans, spreading evenly. Place each pan under the broiler for 3 minutes (this will be a two-phase operation) or until edges begin to brown and evenly crisp.
