We have long loved roasted Brussels sprouts. Roasted sprouts are fantastic (as opposed to the boiled sprouts I hated as a kid). When I saw this idea for roasted cabbage wedges with onion Cajun sauce I immediately added it to my to-do list.
Brussels sprouts are often referred to as mini-cabbages, so using the same approach to roast cabbage as sprouts should be great, right? Yes! Yes! It’s fantastic! Absolutely great! Top them with an easy-to-make mustardy sauce and they are truly great!
No matter how you do it, you’ll love these roasted cabbage wedges with onion Cajun sauce. I like to cut the cabbage into 1/2″ – 3/4″ thick slices. A consistent thickness means that the pieces cook evenly all the way across, versus if you cut them into wedges, where the thicker end won’t be as tender as the thinner one. That’s personal preference, and either way is fine. One advantage to cutting them into wedges is that they do have a different texture from one end to the other. Kinda of mixes things up.
Also try my slow cooker stuffed cabbage rolls.
